The Susie K Diaries
Susie K is a fabulous show-stopper (not!) - but her mum is convinced that Susie can make it as the star of the talent quest ...
Susie K likes science instead of netball and has the class goldfish for a best friend. But Susie's mum finds it hard to believe that she's happy that way. She's constantly trying to push Susie (with the best of intentions, of course!) to be something she's not. And the last thing Susie wants is to disappoint her mum...
Susie's mum is delighted to hear there'll be a talent quest at school ... except Susie has no skills she could perform on a stage. But even though Susie would much rather stay home doing crossword puzzles, she uses all her problem-solving skills to become a show stopper!
In this fresh new series find out how Susie's unconventional problem-solving skills + Mum's optimistically high expectations = hilarious results.
