There are jokes aplenty in this fourth entertaining adventure about Oli and Skipjack who have an uncanny knack of getting into the deepest trouble. Oli’s magic mirror seems like the perfect solution for turning the tables on the mean maths teacher Vernon Surd and Slugger Stubbins the infamous school bully. The trouble is the results are wholly unpredictable. Skipjack must come to the rescue helped out by the zombie witch doctor. The results are wild, wacky and very funny.

Oli and Skipjack's Tales of Trouble: Mirror Mischief by Ceci Jenkinson
