Chirton Krauss is a good child - the very goodest. He does everything he is told, when he is told. He even does good things without being told. He eats his broccoli, he goes to bed on time and he never, ever sticks his finger up his nose.

Meanwhile, Chirton's sister, Myrtle, is NOT a good child. She stays up late, she never cleans out the rabbit's hutch and she drops her choco puffs all over the carpet!

But what will happen when Chirton Krauss decides that being THE GOODY isn't so good after all?

A charmingly funny story about the importance of kindness, and allowing children the freedom to be themselves. From Lauren Child, multi-award-winning creator of Charlie and Lola and Waterstone's Children's Laureate 2017-2019.

Reviews for The Goody

Lauren Child has just been announced as the 10th Waterstones Children's Laureate. * Waterstones * 'Child's 1960s-inflected collage-style art is as appealing as ever, and her narrative...carries an unimpeach able message, namely that people are more complicated than the labels they are assigned.' * Financial Times *
