In this first book in a new series, we are introduced to Tilda and her BFF’s, Harry and Binky, or her ‘TEAM’ as she refers to them - Totally Excellent Awesome Mates.

Tilda is so excited as they are having swimming lessons at school - and she is a superstar swimmer! Or is she?

When things don’t go to plan, Tilda decides that learning cartwheels would be more useful and fun than swimming. So Tilda decides, as she knows she wants to be a teacher one day, to run her own class. But can Tilda learn that there is an art to teaching, and it is more than just telling others what to do?

This is a delightful new series that youngers readers, in particular girls, will love. It highlights important lessons about friendship and confidence, and the words that Tilda puts together to describe things will have your emerging readers trying new ones of their own!
