Cookie and the Most Annoying Girl in the World!

Konnie Huq

Konnie Huq’s much-loved character Cookie returns in a brilliantly funny book that we enjoyed as much as her first (Cookie and the Most Annoying Boy in the World!). With a growing awareness of the problems impacting the environment, Cookie is befriended by Suzy Ashby when they both obtain tickets for Aliana Tiny’s concert. The problem is that Cookie finds everything about Suzy extremely annoying!! 

With her simple but humorous cartoons and a fast-paced storyline, Huq tackles the issues of both plastic pollution and the challenges of retaining friendships, while at the same time as developing new ones. Both issues are handled in an accessible and engaging way for junior readers. 

As in her first book, we really enjoyed the full appendix at the end which is jam-packed with ideas for environmental projects that children can try themselves.

Winner of the Stockport Children’s Book Award best read for 7-9 year olds 2020
