More About the Author

Patricia Puddle lives in the middle of a forest with her husband where she writes and publishes Fantasy Romance and Children's Books. So far Patricia has written three books in her Ominous Series: Fallen Angel (The Prequel), Nathaniel Teen Angel (Book One), and Ominous Love (Book Two). At present she is writing (Book Three) Ominous Angel.

Patricia used her memories of being a mischievous seven-year-old to write and illustrate her Rascals Series: Star-Crossed Rascals & Rascals Sing at The Opera House.

Volunteering for a wildlife rescue charity gave Patricia inspiration to write Molly Gumnut Rescues a Bandicoot.

Velvet Ball and The Broken Fairy is about a little bald girl who gets bullied at school. This children's fantasy story just popped into her head.

Stay tuned for more books by Patricia Puddle.

Oh my gosh, this author does it again!
Amazon Reviewer
Written especially for reluctant readers, these books are funny and interesting enough, that your child will want to keep reading.
Terry Price
The illustrations are cute but I would love to see them much larger.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Polly loves singing in the choir. Too bad she's not the best singer. In fact, she's so bad she constantly keeps singing out of tune, which is why her mean teacher has decided to kick her out of the choir before Polly gets to sing at the Opera House. Fortunately for Polly, her best friend, Gertie, is the best singer in school, and Gertie has decided she won't sing either if Polly's not allowed to come along. Now that's what friends are for. And so Polly get sot sing in the choir after all...but only after agreeing to mime. Polly isn't exactly thrilled, but she gets to be inside the Opera House and that's bound to count for something. To make matters worse, her mean aunt is staying over for a week and that's really bad news because Auntie can't cook. In fact, her concoctions are troublesome for anyone with a healthy stomach, and she's also not keen on Polly becoming famous. As trouble is mounting up for Polly, she's thrown into one misadventure after another with a hilarious climax.
This book was a fantastic read with one laugh after another. The writing was suitable for kids, but challenging enough to allow them to learn something along the way. I loved Polly. She's the perfect endearing little girl who just can't seem able to stay out of trouble. Would thoroughly recommend to both kids and adults who love to laugh.
