Summary

From the funniest voice in young fiction today, the fifth in this irresistible series for young readers about imaginary friends in hilarious rhyming text and with adorable illustrations by Ella Okstad.

Ava danced round her room,
Shouting: “Hip hip hooray!
It’s holiday time!
And we’re going today!”

Ava is excited to be going on holiday to the seaside. But with Squishy McFluff, the mischievous invisible cat coming along things are bound to get very, very silly . . .
