Nayuleska's thoughts

These are the best Daisy stories to date! Seriously hilarious, clever, and unexpected twists at the end of each story. It's a magnificent example of how rich a child's imagination is, that you don't need lots of expensive toys to have fun. Simple, everyday items can become anything, even making you invisible! Daisy's invisibility ability cracked me up, as did the way she got out of eating humans with the tigers. Nick's memorable illustrative style teams perfectly with how I imagine Daisy to be.
