Be ready for a laugh out loud, adorable book! Diary of A Mad Brownie is perfect for read aloud or silent reading (although there will be lots of belly laughs). We loved this book from beginning to end and loved the format that the story was told. From diary entries to documents and more. Augustus is a silly character that is sure to become a favorite among readers and listeners. I hope there is more brownie stories since this one was simply a delight to read. Diary of A Mad Brownie would be a great addition to any gift and wish list.
Summary: Angus is a brownie. No, not the kind you eat! He’s a tiny magical creature that loves to do chores. Angus has just “inherited” a new human girl, Alex. To say that Alex is messy would be an understatement. She’s a total hurricane-like disaster—and she likes it that way, thank you very much! Living with each other isn’t easy but Angus and Alex soon learn there is a curse that binds them. What’s worse, it threatens Alex’s family! Working together, Angus and Alex will set out to break the curse . . . without killing each other first . . . hopefully.
