About the Author

Patricia Puddle lives in Australia and is the author of Velvet Ball and The Broken Fairy, Molly Gumnut Rescues a Bandicoot, Star-Crossed Rascals, and Rascals Sing at The Opera House. As well as writing her children's books, Patricia volunteers for a wildlife rescue charity for injured and orphaned wildlife.

More About the Author

Patricia Puddle writes Paranormal Love Stories, her first in her Ominous Series, Ominous Love, is a 'Coming of Age' love story for older mature teens as well as adults. The Prequel, 'Fallen Angel', is now available. Book two, 'Ominous Angel', will be available sometime in the near future.

Patricia also writes children's books: Velvet Ball and The Broken Fairy is book one in a fantasy series. Nine-year-old Velvet is bullied at school because she has alopecia, which makes her dread going to school. When she finds a tiny fairy in the forest, she thinks her problems will be solved. But Roseberry has no idea how to grant wishes because she didn't pay attention at Magic School. Now she just wants to live in Velvet's bedroom and dance around in Barbie clothes. Velvet threatens to dump her back to the woods, but when the bullies run off with her, Velvet is terrified. Now she'll have to rescue the fairy before the boys discover she's not a Barbie Doll.

Patricia used her memories of being a mischievous seven-year-old to write and illustrate her Rascals Series: (Adventures of Polly and Gertie.) Star-Crossed Rascals & Rascals Sing at The Opera House are full of slap-stick humour and written for reluctant readers.

Volunteering for a wildlife rescue charity gave Patricia inspiration to create another series for children called Adventures of Molly Gumnut. In these stories, Molly will do anything to save animals, even if it means getting into trouble.

Stay tuned for more books by Patricia Puddle.

They are good kids deep inside, but trouble and seemingly always at the wrong place at the wrong time seems to happen.

They're back! That mischievious, adventurous, what-can-we-get-into-now duo! Once again Polly and Gertie entertain with the same enthusiastic, pushed to the limits behaviour. Their antics in this story will have kids and fans gut laughing and don't children love to gut laugh.

This time, Polly's dog, Mange gets into the action. Aunt Mabel returns and is as disagreeable as ever. Her cooking skills haven't improved either.

Polly and Gertie take their friendship and troublemaking to a whole new level. Fans won't be disappointed.

Patricia Puddle has a unique gift that reaches children's minds and funny bone. Kudos to the author.

Format: Paperback
Polly and Gertie are at school. As it often happens in their case they get into trouble with their horrible teacher Miss Badger who doesn't appreciate girls' originality and certain talent for troubles.

Polly and Gertie's class is getting ready for the singing festival which will take place in the Opera House the following week. Polly doesn't have a brilliant singing voice (nobody needs to be perfect, right?) and Gertie teases her about that a lot. Gertie sings beautifully, or at least this is what Polly says.

The teachers realize that Polly sings out of tune and they have to decide whether she should be allowed to sing at the festival. Finally they allowe her to sing in the Opera House under one condition...

However, the whole trip and the performance is in jeopardy when Aunt Mabel (the one who cooks horriblly) turns up on Friday afternoon to pick Polly up from school. This certainly is not what Polly needs because she has a big plan for the festival. To see what that is you must read the book.

"Rascals Sing at the Opera House" is the second instalment of Polly and Gertie adventures and, as in the first one, you are in for a real treat.

Patricia Puddle once again wrote a funny, entertaining and exciting book for both, children and parents (I think parents should definitely read it!!!).

PS.
You should also read Patricia's previous books, which are a fantastic read too.

Rascals Sing at The Opera House is a very entertaining story about two adventurous girls in school. The illustrations are cute but I would love to see them much larger.

I must admit I was a bit dubious to try this book out, It just goes to show sometimes if you like the look of a book but the reviews are not in the 100s at that time it may still be worth it, Well I can honestly say It was well worth it, I thought it was brilliant, I am now a big fan of this author ! 5 Stars all the way.

An excellent read for those children, although i must admit I too enjoyed reading this book to my grand chilren. I initially purchased the ebook, but have now ordered a few paperbacks for Christmas pressys.

Anything that encourages my grand children to read is a must to have around.

As usual these two rascals get into all sorts of mischief and adventures. Their comments are hillarious, I don't know where this writer comes up with some very original conversations.

The illustrations are fabulous and fit the characters to a tee.

already looking forward to the next ones Ms Puddle.
