"Nilsson has a peculiar power to make you remember exactly what it was like to be small, fierce, disempowered and six"

This is really a collection of the funniest dispatches from her first school year. Hattie is a talented writer in the classroom, but, sometimes with her new school friend Linda, she has a tendency to indulge in light, old-fashioned mischief — such as getting lost on the way home from school and narrowly avoiding a killer bog or picking a lady’s prize lupins without asking.
