The Lovereading4Kids comment
The pupils at Wigglesbottom Primary have very active imaginations and are quick to believe that there’s a shark in the swimming pool, a dinosaur skeleton under their vegetable garden and that Miss Ranger’s play parachute bestows invisibility. Their poor teachers really don’t stand a chance! Absolutely perfect for children just starting to read on their own, these wonderfully accurate descriptions of school life are funny, well-told and hugely satisfying. There are three self-contained stories in the book, easy and rewarding to read. They look fabulous too – Becka Moor’s illustrations bring the characters to life while clever design smooths the way for new readers. Excellent stuff. ~ Andrea Reece
Kirsty from Nosy Crow says: “These stories are a hoot from start to finish, and Becka Moor’s illustrations bring out the brilliance brilliantly. A joy for anyone who’s ever sat on an itchy story-time carpet. And who hasn’t?"

Three more stories of primary school mayhem from the Red House Children's Book Award shortlisted author, Pamela Butchart. Is there a shark in the local swimming pool? YES! Can playing with the class parachute make you invisible? YES! Are there dinosaur bones buried in the playground? YES! What are 2R going to do about it all? Have a lot of fun!
