Synopsis

Saving Miss Mirabelle by Anne Fine, Mark Beech

A classic children's story from one of our best-loved authors, former Children's Laureate Anne Fine. Lancelot's lovely teacher, Miss Mirabelle, is in big trouble. She's told a giant whopper and unless she can come up with a brilliant plan, she's going to look very, very silly. Can Lancelot help this damsel in distress? Little does he know that Ivan will leave a lasting influence, and that he himself will never enjoy listening to nursery rhymes ever again . . . Anne Fine's fun school stories have been delighting children for more than 20 years, winning her awards such as the Smarties Book Award and Carnegie Medal along the way.

Reviews

'this entirely charming tale of an unconventional teacher, a suspicious head, an imaginative class and a co-operative cow'

* 'A remarkable writer

* 'Anne Fine is an author who knows how to make readers laugh

About the Author

Anne Fine is one of the UK's best-loved authors. She was the Children's Laureate from 2001-2003 and has won both the Carnegie Medal and the Whitbread Award twice. She has published over 50 books for children, including favourites such as Bill's New Frock, Ivan the Terrible and The Angel of Nitshill Road. When she was young, it never occurred to Anne that she might be a writer. But one day, unable to get to the library in a snowstorm, she sat down and started to write a novel. Clearly this was the right job for her, for she has never stopped writing for more than a few weeks since.
