The Woman Who Won Things by Allan Ahlberg
The second of Allan Ahlberg's mini-masterpieces for early readers. One lucky morning Mrs Gaskitt opens the post and finds she's won a prize! Next she kisses the postman! Never mind, though - the postman is Mr Gaskitt doing his very latest job. Meanwhile, Gus and Gloria get a new teacher, Mrs Plum, with silvery hair, a big smile and a huge suitcase, who's ever so helpful when things start to go missing in the classroom. And then Mrs Gaskitt finds she's won another prize! What happens next?
The Gaskitt stories are:
