The Lovereading4Kids comment

Magic carpets don't usually turn up in schools, but this is exactly what happens when Class Three’s new teacher flies in through the classroom window and lands on the floor with a bump.
Mr Majeika can behave just like any ordinary teacher if he wants to, but sometimes magic is the best way to sort out little problems in class – but problems arise when he forgets how to reverse some of his spells. This funny book is perfect for readers from 5 – 8.

Perfect for Reluctant Readers as well as keen readers. To view other titles we think are suitable for reluctant readers please click here.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Class 3 was quite ordinary until the new teacher Mr Majeika arrived on his magic carpet - no. his bicycle. For the children must keep quiet about his magic if he is to stay their teacher.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
