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?"
