My Embarrassing Dad’s Gone Viral and Missing Arabella Mini Reviews

Today I’d like to chat about two recent releases from Oxford University Press. I was sent a copy of both books unexpectedly. They both looked like fun reads so I was happy to give them a go! Click on the book image to get to the Goodreads page for the book.

My Embarrassing Dad's Gone Viral

Synopsis:

What’s a boy to do when his mum disappears, his dad moves him and his sister to the middle of nowhere, and his life takes a very swift downward turn . . . secretly launch his dad on the internet as the Next Big Thing, of course!

Hi guys!
I bet every one of you knows what it’s like to have an embarrassing parent – right? I bet they’ve done something so cringey that you wanted the ground to open up and swallow you whole. But let me tell you, my friend, NOBODY has a dad like mine. He takes embarrassing to a whole new level. If embarrassing was an Olympic sport, my dad would have, like, a gazillion gold medals.

This hilarious story will have instant appeal to a YouTube-watching generation and is told through a series of vlogs. Combining Ben Davis’s brilliantly-funny voice and Mike Lowery’s amazingly-amazing illustrations is sure to make this a hit with readers everywhere. After all, everyone knows what it’s like to have an embarrassing parent, don’t they?

Synopsis:

A twin banished . . . an unbreakable bond . . . an unlikely fairytale. Sometimes a disaster is just a disaster, and nothing good can be said about it. But sometimes a disaster is an excuse for a fresh start.

Arabella and Henrietta are twins. If you saw them, you’d find it very hard to tell them apart. But once you get to know them, you’ll discover that although they look alike, that’s where the similarity ends . . .

Henrietta is a constant headache for her parents-always causing problems and upset. Why, oh why can’t she be more like Arabella?

Sent away to live with strange Aunt Renfrew, Henrietta wonders if she’ll ever see Arabella again. But the bond between sisters is strong, and even stronger when your sister is also your twin and your best friend. And so Arabella begins her journey through the forest to find Henrietta . . .
