The Lovereading4Kids comment
As the children of such exceptional parents, it is no surprise that the Gaskitt children are all set for an adventure of their own. A bumper book with extra chapters in which baby Gary Gaskitt and twins Gloria and Gus Gaskitt have exciting adventures of their own, including baby Gary getting swept up and away in a skip. That’s when they are not solving the mystery of the very odd things that their teacher is suddenly doing… The Gaskitt family adventures will delight all newly confident readers.
The Children Who Smelled a Rat by Allan Ahlberg
A black and white illustrated edition of the fourth in the award-winning series about the engergetic Gaskitt family! In this thrilling, thunderous (and extra-long) Gaskitt story, Mrs Gaskitt finds a parcel, Mr Gaskitt loses a baby, Horace has mixed feelings about a bird, and the twins' teacher, Mrs Fritter, is - ooer! - not herself. The children smell a rat!
The Gaskitt stories are:
Praise for this series:
