About the Book

Three of Jean Ure’s best-loved stories in a bumper 3-in-1 edition – SKINNY MELON AND ME, BECKY BANANAS and FRUIT AND NUTCASE. The perfect summer read!

Madness, memories and mayhem!

In Skinny Melon and Me, Cherry wonders how her mum could even think of remarrying – and to such a dweeb! At least she has her best friend, Skinny Melon, to cheer her up…

In Becky Bananas: This is Your Life! Becky shares her dreams and describes her wonderful life so far.

And in Fruit and Nutcase Mandy's scatty parents drive her up the wall! She's trying really hard not to totally lose the plot…
