Lucinda Belinda Melinda McCool Summary

Lucinda Belinda Melinda McCool by Jeanne Willis

The most beautiful girl in the whole of the school is Lucinda Belinda Melinda McCool - but Lucinda Belinda felt it was her duty to guide all her friends in the subject of beauty. Lucinda becomes the scourge of family and friends, criticising big bottoms and moustaches (especially her grandma's) until everyone avoids her. So when Lucinda meets a monster in the forest, she decides it's her mission to make-over this scary creature. Unfortunately changing its outside does not change what's inside - as Lucinda Belinda discovers!

Lucinda Belinda Melinda McCool Reviews

A great anti-body-shaming lesson, poking fun at the shallowness of people who think looks and grooming are supremely important. -- Nicolette Jones * Sunday Times *
A great cautionary tale from a winning combination * Guardian, The Best New Children's Books *
This is a brilliant piece of comic verse, wonderfully illustrated by Tony Ross, and should be recited to and by children up and down the country for their delight and edification. Superb! -- Andrea Reece * Lovereading4Kids *
A cautionary tale with a dark bite. -- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller *
Tongue-pleasingly melodious text * BookTrust *
