Chips, Beans and Limousines is the first book of three funny, diary-style books from the point of view of a girls named Bathsheba Clarice de Trop. Written by Leila Rasheed and published by Usborne, in 2008.
A girl called Bathsheba Clarice de Trop lives with her mum. She has never met her father. One day she returns from school and finds her mother with a strange man. After a lot of discussions, she realises that this man is her father. Bathsheba starts spending time with him and gets to know him better and finally loves him. Bathsheba, Mum, Dad, the cleaner and Bathsheba’s friends were my favourite characters in the book because they were funny.
I have to say this book was a real page turner!
I liked this book so much. My favourite part was when Bathsheba found her father because it was very touching. The were only funny bits. I learned that we should never come to fast conclusions like Bathsheba did.
I recommend this book because it will touch your heart. It’s about the importance of love for your family.
