    Daisy and the Pirates: A Daisy Tannenbaum Misadventure

    “Daisy is steadfast and intelligent…her casual first-person narration quickly establishes a rapport with readers who should enjoy watching Daisy’s quick thinking in action in her paradise adventure.” —BookLife Reviews Eleven-year-old Daisy Tannenbaum, tomboy extraordinaire, doesn’t want to go back to school. So, when she ends up on an isolated island in the Indian Ocean after her family is accidentally kidnapped by Malay pirates, she’s totally psyched. For her, this is paradise. Her family, however, is utterly unprepared to cope with the primitive conditions on the island. Her parents are barely on speaking terms, her sister wants to crush Daisy’s skull with a rock, and a grad student Daisy’s dad may or may not have had a thing with ends up washed ashore with them. Nothing ruins paradise like having your stupid family around. But that doesn’t stop Daisy from having the time of her life finding buried treasure, fighting off sharks, pirates, and scorpion attacks, and rescuing her family despite herself. Move over Swiss Family Robinson, Daisy Tannenbaum has swung into action in this first in a series of adventure stories that will be enjoyed by readers young and old. *DAISY AND THE MISSING MONA LISA is coming November 1, 2022!
