Summary

From the best-selling Maz Evans comes a new series about Scarlett Fife: logical, mathematical - but when it comes to her big feelings, completely out of control.... Heartfelt and hilarious, perfect for fans of Roald Dahl's Matilda.

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....

Laugh-out-loud action for every child and parent who have ever lost control of their feelings - this is sparkling and heartwarming.
