The Lovereading comment:
This is the hilarious new title in the phenomenally successful and side-splittingly funny Jiggy McCue series. Jiggy is having real problems with the new drama teacher as she makes him do loads of really embarrassing things, and really rude things, in public. This is laugh out loud funy and guaranteed to be the talk of the playground for those children, boys in particular, aged 8+.

SynopsisJiggy McCue: Rudie Dudie by Michael Lawrence
A new drama teacher, Ms Mooney, has arrived at Ranting Lane, Jiggy's school. She plans to put on a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream - and guess who will be chosen to play Bottom? Not only that, Ms Mooney also seems to be able to mesmerise Jiggy into doing things he really shouldn't, especially not in public ...
'Light, easy, funny, slapstick humour with some contemporary satire thrown in for good measure ... I laughed out loud as I read'. Jill Murphy, Bookbag, on Kid Swap
'The Killer Underpants needs to be read by kids themselves because no adult will get the words out for laughing. Fantastic and real - and very funny.' Bernard Ashley, The Guardian, on The Killer Underpants
'The Poltergoose is a mix of sitcom farce and hardboiled American detective novel. The book's climax - the reburial of a goose with a restless spirit - features a hilarious sequence in a ladies' toilet.' Michael Thorn in The Times Educational Supplement on The Poltergoose
