Interest Age 8-12 Reading Age 8 | In a nutshell: shocking levels of sucking-up in super-readable school story | Aidan Abet works hard at school making sure he stays teacher’s pet – it’s the best way of ensuring protection from horrible bullies the (unrelated) Robert and Robin Robinson. But can he win over Miss Vowel, who seems to care more for her growing collection of school pets than any of her pupils? Fortunately for Aidan, he discovers just what makes Miss Vowel’s pets so special and his problems disappear in two shakes of a rat’s tail! Roald Dahl would have appreciated Miss Vowel’s approach to maintaining discipline in the classroom, and there’s a deliciously dark ending to this lively, funny adventure. ~ Andrea Reece

Mairi Kidd from Barrington Stoke says: “Guy has done us proud – Aidan Abet is as wickedly funny as any fan of Stitch Head could desire. I honestly can’t remember when I last laughed so hard at a book. Guy has
created a wonderfully grotesque cast of characters, headed up of course by awful Aidan, for whom I have a ridiculous soft spot, horrid creature though he is. I love Guy’s word-play – that title is an all-time favourite – and I may never forget what Auntie Pauline said about the postman that time…”

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+

Synopsis

Aidan Abet, Teacher's Pet by Guy Bass

Aidan Abet knows the key to surviving at school - it's making himself indispensable to the teacher. Unfortunately there's something distinctly odd about new teacher Miss Vowel and her menagerie of animals. It almost seems that the animals are warn Aidan of danger...Should Aidan help the animals, or is his dedication to teacher-pleasing just too ingrained?

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+

About the Author

Guy Bass
Q&A with author Guy Bass: Q: Where did the inspiration for Spynosaur come from?
I was scribbling things down and the name popped into my head. I though the idea of a dinosaur whose job it was to be inconspicuous might be funny.
Q: Who is your favourite character from the book?
Probably Danger Monkey. He's a spider-monkey spy (spy-der monkey?) who has an insult for every occasion. I really like Amber too - she's Spynosaur's daughter and sidekick, and while she admires her dad, she also finds him incredibly embarrassing.
Q: If your brain was transported into the mind of any animal what would it be?
A dolphin. I'd be as at home in the ocean as I would be in ... another ocean. Q: Following on from the above, would you be a spy or something else?
I've never tried golf. Maybe I could be the world's first and only golfing dolphin, Golphin.
Q: What’s next for Spynosaur?
I'm writing Spynosaur: Goldenclaw at the moment. Spynosaur is desperate to find a new arch enemy, but the monstrous Goldenclaw is too villainous even for him. It's got everything a dinosaur secret agent comedy adventure story should have, with added gold.
