Anne Fine wrote many great books as well as Bills New Frock.She also wrote: The Diary of a Killer Cat, Flour Babies, Step by Wicked Step and many others.
On one normal school morning, Bill awoke to find that he was a girl! His parents were treating him the same, as was his cat. When he was going to school, he came across Mean Malcom and his gang. They whistled at him.
In school, while they were doing a story, the bell rang for yard. There he was out in the playground, when he realised that all of the girls were in the corners of the playground. He went over to one of the groups of girls and they said if he could kick the ball through one of the windows, he would get a wumpy choo but the boys wouldn’t give him the ball.
The next yard they couldn’t go out. This put the teacher in a bad mood. The class ran to get a comic but they were too rough which caused the teacher to hand out the comics (and we all know how that ends) - Bill got a bad comic. He tried to swap but nobody would. When he finally got interested in the book, Aiden wanted to swap! He said no, so they ended up fighting in the class!
I liked this book very much because, it had hard words and I like attempting to say them. It was very funny but at the same time I wouldn’t like to wake up as a girl myself! I disliked this book because I felt it was non- universal. I felt that way because Anne Fine used words such as wumpy choo. That is an English phrase which confused me.
I would recommend this book to anybody from the ages of 8 to 11
