The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Book Prize 2009
Four completely crazy, off the wall crazy, stories about the funniest class ever. Crammed full of zany and exuberant characters and the mishaps and mayhem that ensue. But spare a thought for poor Mr Wellington, their long-suffering teacher.
Shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funniest Book Prize 2009 and well deserved too. Go to prizewinners to see some of the others.
Purple Class and the Half-eaten Sweater by Sean Taylor
Purple Class are back with four more entertaining stories that highlight the funny side of primary school life. There is never a dull moment when Jamal, Shea, Leon, Yasmin, Jodie and the others are involved, and the exasperated Mr Wellington is in charge. In 'The Half-Eaten Sweater', a former international cricketer visits to give the children some coaching in the game, but can Jamal behave himself well enough to be allowed to take part? 'The Non-Stop Fundraising Day' finds Jamal and Shea being sponsored to keep silent for half an hour. Jodie is sure there is a werewolf stealing underwear at the outdoor centre Purple Class are staying at in 'The Underwear Wolf'. And in 'The Double-Chocolate Cake' Mr Wellington receives a birthday surprise from his class. Brilliantly written, Purple Class are a William and the Outlaws for today's multicultural society.
'Genuine, laugh out loud short stories set in the modern multi-cultural classroom' Achuka
