The Lovereading4Kids comment

School is possibly the most boring place on earth – or so Harvey thinks until he comes up with an original way of spicing things up. With bets running during lessons things certainly can be fun. Too much fun sometimes! How often will the Head blow his nose? Count the number of times the supply teacher twitches. And, do it all without the teachers getting suspicious. It’s a great craze but it could go seriously wrong.

Help! I'm a Classroom Gambler by Pete Johnson

Harvey thinks school is the most boring place on earth. He and his fellow gamblers start to bet on how many times the supply teacher will give a nervous twitch, how often the Head will blow his nose and lots of other possible outcomes. All of a sudden, school is fun, but then the craze starts to spread and he realises it's getting out of control.

The constituent parts of this novel make for a real romp of a read that will leave readers ravenous for more by Pete Johnson -- Jacob Hope * Achuka * Wonderfully subversive . . . Johnson's own experience as a teacher gives this story of classroom mayhem an extra edge . . . Really funny, clever, exciting and completely draws the reader in * Supernanny * Every pre-teen knows that school can be a bit of a bore and Pete Johnson exploits this to the full with a brillant look at what pupils get up to right under teacher's nose - and how they can make amends when it all goes too far * Eastern Daily Press *
