When Mum took the day off
It was one of those days when Mum was being really annoying. Not only did she forget to buy eggs to make pancakes, but she also bought Ewan the wrong chocolate bar. It didn't help that Mum made the trousers on the fireman's outfit too big either and why did she keep going on about him tidying his room?
Then Mum surprises Ewan by taking a day off. This seems like a great idea at first but slowly turns into a nightmare once Ewan realises how much his mum really does for him.

Superheroes don’t wear glasses.
Eight year old Alfie loves his new glasses, but he doesn’t want to wear them, because all the superheroes in his storybooks don’t wear glasses, and he wants to be just like them.

A must read for any little boy who needs to wear glasses.
This is Jacqueline Waterhouse’s second published children’s book. Jacqueline was born in Switzerland in 1970 and spent the first 30 years of her life there. She moved to England in 2000 and is now living in West Sussex with her husband and her 2 daughters. When she is not running after the children, her husband or the dog, she spends every moment she can in her garden which, apart from writing, is her passion!
Note from the Author
When my 4 year old daughter was told that she needed to wear glasses she was not keen at all. It was a daily struggle to get her to wear them and this gave me the idea for my first book Princesses don’t wear glasses. The book is designed to encourage young girls to wear glasses and be proud of them. I had a lot of feedback from parents who struggle with the same problem and they felt that this book really made a difference and that there should be an equivalent for boys. So I am proudly presenting the boy’s version Superheroes don’t wear glasses.

‘A sweetly written, superbly illustrated story with a strong and very important message.’

Review
As I grow older and, I hope, a little wiser, I am beginning to find Disney films very annoying. Why? Well, why is it every princess has to look identical? Why is it every Disney princess has to be stunning in every way? Not only is it bugging, but it also sends the wrong message to children. Basically, if you want to be a winner, you must be pretty. Well, here’s a book that sends a very different message to children and I think it’s fab!
The hero of the story is Charlie-Marie, an eight year old who is told she must wear glasses. But, as she rightly tells her mother, ‘Princesses don’t wear glasses’. But, when she meets a fairy from the Land of Beauty, she learns that beauty is not what she thought it was.
And so begins her magical adventure!
This is a very warmly-written story. I can sort of tell that the author enjoyed writing it. To me, it had a sort of sweet Enid Blyton feel to it. A perfect children’s book for a cold night in front of a log fire!
I very much enjoyed the fact that the characters were not overly described, and, subsequently, the story had good pacing. In fact, they didn’t need to be, as the wonderful drawings very much brought the characters to life. I particularly liked Gerard, the ladybird, and how, at last, the girl can see how many spots are on a ladybird’s shell.
The cover also looks fab and, on the back, there is a well-written and snappy blurb.
If I can find any fault in the story, I thought the first chapter had a little too much ‘tell’ and not enough ‘show’. But, apart from that, the story is well-written and perfectly paced. I’d be happy to recommend this book as a bedtime reader for younger children (4 – 7) and as a first chapter book for slightly older children (6 – 9). I think girls would probably enjoy it more.

Hello everyone
My little girl has to wear glasses and she was not keen at all.
This gave me the idea of writing a children's book for other mums who had the same problem as me. I have just published it and would like to introduce it to you all.
Also if anyone would like a free copy in PDF format including all illustrations please contact me on
waterhousebooks@gmail.com
all I ask for in return is an honest review on the publishing site.
The book is aimed at girls aged 3-7
Thank you very much for reading this.

Eight-year-old Charlie loves her new glasses, but she doesn't want to wear them, because all the princesses in her storybooks don't wear glasses, and she wants to be just like them.

However, this all changes when she has a visitor who takes her on a journey to meet one very special princess and her fairy helpers.
