Book Review of ‘The Fabulous Diary of Persephone Pinchgut’ book collection from Books 2 Door


We have been reviewing ‘The Fabulous Diary of Persephone Pinchgut’ book collection from Books 2 Door.

This collection comes with 4 great books from ‘The Fabulous Diary of Persephone Pinchgut’ series by author Aleesah Darlison. The books include Musical Mayhem, Model Mania, Tropical Trouble and Birthday Bonanza, they are all written in the format of Persephone’s secret diary.  These books are for young readers aged around 7-9 years old, they are in an easy to read format and are perfect for children to follow along with.

My girls have loved reading the these books and following Persephone’s diary and her most secret thoughts that she shares in it.

The books are all uplifting even when talking about her Dad not being around and her mother being a single mum it is still written in a positive way instead of showing sadness or anger. I also love the twin bond that the sisters have going on and how they are always there for one another and get through whatever is thrown at them together.

My girls loved the humour in the books and laughed along whilst we read them, there is also small black and white illustrations throughout the books by illustrator Serena Geddes, that also help bring out the humour in the stories.


These books remind me of the Dork Diary books in the way they are written and how they cover what happens in their daily lives in a funny way, however this series is aimed at a younger audience than the Dork Diaries books.

This is a great series for children aged 7-9 years old and for £5.99 for 4 books with Books2doors it is an amazing deal and so worth the money. My girls have given these books a thumbs up. You can order it here
