Boobela is fed up! She's bored with routines and she's secretly missing Mum and Dad who are still abroad. She knows she shouldn't take it out on Worm, but she can't help herself. Will their friendship ever return to normal? In the other stories, Boobela’s relationship with her Gran is threatened by a girl whose magic is as strong as hers. But she has fun too, helping the shy swimmers overcome their fears, and having the best ever birthday party with all her new friends. The Boobela and Worm stories go from strength to strength as Joe Friedman's vividly imagined world unfolds, brought to life by Sam Childs's stunning full-colour artwork.
