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 and her adventures in the first of a sparkling new 7-12-year-old series.
With live draw-alongs, brain-busting quizzes and games galore – prepare for non-stop comedy fun.
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, the Cookie books will strike a chord for anyone who’s ever been to school.
‘Smart, funny and full of warmth, just like its author’ David Walliams
‘Everybody’s going to fall in love with Cookie. She’s clever and funny and just can’t seem to get anything right.’ Charlie Higson
Konnie Huq is a huge advocate for getting girls into science and as a child was just as obsessive as her character Cookie. Konnie’s first foray on television was presenting the satellite show TVFM at the tender age of 16. She is best known for being the longest serving member of the Blue Peter team and has recently started presenting The Tube on Channel 4 Radio. And in between all of this, she’s even managed to fit in an Economics degree from Cambridge! In 2009 Huq won the Best Rising Star Screenplay Angel award at the Monaco International Film Festival and she co-wrote, with husband Charlie Brooker, the second episode of the Channel 4 anthology series Black Mirror, entitled Fifteen Million Merits.
