CHAPTER 1

I AM SO ANGRY I THINK MY BUM MIGHT FALL OFF!!!!

And I don’t even care that this pie chart doesn’t actually add up to a hundred per cent like pie charts actually should. (Which I’d normally really care about, by the way, because that’s how pie charts work and that’s why I’m on The Purple Table in Maths, which we all know is the best one, but we have to pretend that all the Maths tables are the same, even though The Green Table still haven’t learned their three times table and probably think a pie chart is a menu in a cafe.)

Synopsis

Scarlett Fife has BIG FEELINGS. And when she has BIG FEELINGS, they explode out of her like an over-squeezed stress ball. Scarlett's in big trouble after a BIG FEELINGS episode leads to a runaway hamster getting into the vicar's trousers at her aunty's engagement party. If she loses her temper ONE MORE TIME, she's going to miss out on her trip to Mega Awesome Sicky Fun World, the best theme park on the planet. But feelings are like slime in a party bag. No matter how much someone tells you to keep it in, it'll always find its way out. And very soon, Scarlett notices that every time she pushes her feelings down, something explodes. Like ... really, properly explodes. It might be her teacher's slimy green smoothie. A huge pot of purple paint. Or a massive pile of elephant poo at the zoo. And let's hope Scarlett doesn't get mad at Aunty's wedding - that wedding cake is HUGE ...
