Paperback / softback
Ava’s been training hard for an awesome athletics season, and is looking forward to celebrating her 12th birthday. Life’s great—and Chloe the dog is having puppies! Even if Mum gets annoyed at Ava’s lack of organisation, Ava can always rely on her best friend Josie and her sister Maddie to pick up after her.
But when the pandemic hits, everything’s cancelled. There’s no school, no birthday, no athletics, no toilet paper and definitely no Josie to rely on.
When a puppy goes missing, it’s Ava’s fault. Can she mend her irresponsible ways in time?
The Ava Show is a contemporary work with humour and lessons, teaching middle fiction readers how they can be more considerate and getting them to think about what responsibilities they should be taking care of.
Set during the Coronavirus Pandemic, this book explores the affects lockdown and the virus had on this particular family.
