Josie Smith by Magdalen Nabb
Josie Smith is the irrepressible little girl who's been on Granada TV in several series.
She's the one who's jealous of her best friend Eileen (who always gets whatever she wants). She's also the one who gets into trouble all the time, but generally seems to come up smelling of roses! In this book Josie Smith saves up for a birthday present, runs away from home and steals a ginger cat.
