This was an awesome book I couldn't put it down it was just amazing. My favorite character is V a.k.a Vera Lynn. Because even though she was naughty it was because she was jealous and couldn't see properly but nobody knew that.

I liked this book because when they decide the name, which is really funny. I use to like Mattie the best, until Baby Will Came. I would recommend it to my friends.

It was a great follow up from my funny family and my favourite character was Stanley and V because Stanley gets a reading award and V gets glasses like me. I recommend this to 7-10 year olds

I would recommend this to people who enjoy friendship and uniting

I loved reading this book and hated the thought of finishing.
My favourite character was V because she’s not afraid to stand up for herself.
I’d recommend it to anyone.

As christmas comes closer the baby in Mattie's mum's tummy gets bigger and bigger. On top of that, V is acting realy weird. I think this book is really good and recommend it two anyone. All the charectors are so good, I can't choose the best!

I loved this book because it continued on from the previous story. I especially liked that the baby was called Will, which reminded me of Will from their Cornwall holiday.

Last (so far) in the series about a girl who worries a lot & her family; this one tells the story of their Christmas holidays.
I recommend it because I like the worry lists.
