Winner of the Children’s Book Award 2016, Books for Younger Readers category A third riotous adventure for Jodi, Maisie, Zach and all the rest in 4J including the fast-paced narrator, Izzy. This time, part of the school is suddenly put out-of-bounds. When 4J have to share a classroom with 6B, the gang discover that the reason that it is closed is …Rats! Could this have anything to do with the new head teacher who keeps his curtains closed ? As ever, the gang is quick to jump to conclusions. If the head is a vampire rat, they must do everything in their power to destroy him! The classroom goes wild in this witty no-holds-barred story.

Kirsty from Nosy Crow says: “Lots of books are described as ‘laugh out loud’ but Pamela’s are the real deal. They are beloved by all who read them. Pamela is a real star, and we’re delighted to have found such a perfect match for her in Thomas Flintham.”

Synopsis

My Head Teacher is a Vampire Rat by Pamela Butchart

The third zippy and zany tale by Pamela Butchart sees Izzy and her friends plunged into more primary-school craziness. This time, they decide that their new head teacher is a vampire rat, based on his being slightly scary, having the blinds drawn in his office during the day and the fact he's banned garlic bread at lunchtimes. Now they just have to come up with a plan to vanquish him...

Readers of all ages love these books but they really strike a chord with 7-9 year olds, who firmly believe that every hilarious thing that happens could happen to them too!

About the Author

Pamela Butchart

As a child, Pamela was lucky enough to grow up in a house full of pets, have a mum and dad who were bonkers, and go to The Best Most Awesome Primary School in the WorldTM. As a student, Pamela's student jobs included: fishwife, teaching basketball in America, phlebotomist, and Artist Liaison for a (really bad) Abba tribute band. Now, Pamela teaches philosophy to teenagers and spends all day pondering questions such as, 'Is time travel possible?' and 'How do I know I'm not really a robot?' The stories write themselves really...Pamela lives in Dundee with her husband, Andy, and their two cats, Bear & Carlos. Carlos only has one eye and is Pamela's hero.
