Konnie Huq’s new book is out now!

Get ready to meet Cookie Haque – funny, science-obsessed and ready to take on the world! Join author, broadcaster and beloved former Blue Peter presenter Konnie Huq as she introduces you to Cookie’s adventures in a sparkling new series.

Publishing in hardback on 8th August 2019, Cookie and the Most Annoying Boy in the World marks the start of a brandnew hilarious series for young readers and introduces the world to Cookie Haque – nine years old, obsessed with science and ready to take on the world. Or at least she thinks she is . . .

Cookie has never quite felt as if she fits in – a quirky girl with a touch of the geek, from a Bangladeshi family – and with an uncanny ability to get herself into almost constant scrapes. Populated by a hilarious cast of characters, from annoying classmates to tedious teachers and of course her amazing friends, ‘, the Cookie books will strike a chord for anyone
who’s ever been to school.

With a joyful combination of anarchic humour and the thoughts we all have (but most of us remember not to actually say!), with a bit of STEM
learning sneaked in, the Cookie books are essential reading for anyone in the 8–12-year-old age group.

Here are some wonderful reviews from young readers and fellow authors:
