The first novel in the series takes Daisy from birth to ten in memorable and fast moving detail. As the author says, she is a perfectly normal child until she is born. Then her powers proliferate as she enters the world and causes consternation in the maternity ward. After that things get serious, or at least as serious as this fun-filled account allows. Whether she visits the moon or a horse ranch in Montana or transits people to the Caribbean, Daisy enchants. The section on her time in New York City is particularly memorable.
Daisy will delight the ten and older for whom it is written and be a good companion for teens and later. The novel is well-edited and well-paced. Daisy Weal is a five book series and, having raced through this, the first of five, I can't wait to get my hands on the next one. Daisy Weal is a five star winner. Enjoy.

Daisy Weal by Robert Jacobs 12-1-2012
Goodreads author Oh my goodness! I love this book! It made me remember all the times I found myself lost in a book as a kid. Daisy's adventures are so creative and I couldn't stop laughing... or reading. You must read all the way to the end as everything turns out good. This could be turned into a great movie! I'm hooked....on to the next Daisy Weal book!

What an amazing imagination Robert Jacobs has! I started to read this book to see whether it was suitable for my 14 year old niece; I am not embarassed to say I couldn't put it down until I had finished it. Great 'stuff' Robert, I'm looking forward to reading your next one (Daisy Weal and the Monster).
