The Feely Tonks Series

Phoebe Dorcas Tonks is a brutally honest clever young lady, who is permanently annoyed at the world. Phoebe, or Feely for short, lives with her useless Mum and Dad – they’re worse than having a single parent. Even at the best of times they only add up to three fifths of a decent parent. And then there’s Feely’s older brother Oliver. He’s too big to live in a small house and his feet smell. It’s like having a kitten – cute but then it grows up into a normal boring cat and just lolls about the place stinking up the place.
