Tilda Tries Again puts feelings centre stage in this latest title in Tom Percival’s Big Bright Feelings series

A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month August 2021

Tilda’s life is just as she likes it until, suddenly, everything seems to be difficult. Nothing seems as it should be, everything is just upside down. How can Tilda get her life to turn the right side up again? Watching a ladybird struggle to get off its back gives Tilda a clue: if you want something, you just have to work at it! Slowly but surely she starts to put enjoyment back into her life and soon books are fun to read again and her friends welcome her back to play.
