Class Six and the Nits of Doom by Sally Prue


Class Six and the Nits of Doom by Sally Prue

Class 6's teacher is a witch. That's bad. The dancing skeletons and pterodactyls they can see in her eyes are worse. And nobody likes the snake in her desk. But worst of all are the witch-nits. Rodney catches them first. It's not long before the whole class is scratching. Then strange things start happening to them. The green glowing toenails. The antennae that pick up digital radio. And whatever it is that Rodney's turning into...Is there any cure for the nits of doom?


Things just get weirder and weirder in this hilarious tale which takes a whole new look at teachers. -- Sarah Brew ...a jolly good romp which moves at a cracking pace and those who've just begun to read fluently will love it. -- Adele Geras
