The Accidental Diary of B.U.G. (Paperback)Jen Carney (author)
Brimming with warmth, humour, inclusivity and illustrated diary action, this hilarious first-in-series follows the adventures of inimitable new heroine Billie Upton Green and is perfect for fans of Wimpy Kid and Pamela Butchart's books.
Meet Billie Upton Green and her VERY accidental diary - and don't you DARE call her B.U.G!
Billie has taken the new girl at school under her wing. She'll teach her the important stuff - Biscuit Laws, Mrs Patterson and of course where to sneakily eat a Jaffa Cake. She might even get invited to the EVENT OF THE YEAR (Billie's mums' are getting married).
But then suspicion sets in. The new girl seems VERY close to Billie's best friend Layla. And she knows a LOT about the big school heist - the theft of Mrs Robinson's purse. But, Billie is on to her. Well, as long as Patrick doesn't catch her eating biscuits first.
Join Billie in this laugh-out-loud adventure!

'For readers of seven-plus, Jen Carney's The Accidental Diary of B.U.G. (Puffin) introduces sparky eponymous heroine Billie Upton Green... this cheery, highly illustrated diary story, more rooted in contemporary reality than Liz Pichon's Tom Gates books, is the first in a series that's sure to find devoted fans.' - Guardian
'A sparky, funny new series perfect for fans of Diary of A Wimpy Kid.' - Daily Mail
'Fun, funny, inclusive and warm-hearted, these books are pure, cheery joy.' - Sophie Anderson, author of The House with Chicken Legs
'Ideal for fans of Tom Gates, or Pamela Butchart's books... a wonderful new series.' - The Week Junior
'I really enjoyed reading the adventures of Billie Upton Green (not B.U.G.!!). Billie is a delightful and relatable character, and her escapades are both funny and heart-warming. I particularly enjoyed the inclusivity in the text, and it's a real joy to see such positive LGBTQ+ representation in children's books. Jen has written a real treat for younger readers, and the artwork is fabulous, too!' - L. D. Lapinski, author of The Strangeworlds Travel Agency
