Purple Class and the Skelington by Sean Taylor


Purple Class and the Skelington by Sean Taylor

Meet Purple Class. Yasmin thinks she sees the ghost of the Green Lady who haunts the school looking for first years to kill with scissors. Surely the old and mean-looking lady in the green dress is the spectre herself - or maybe she's just Orange class's substitute teacher. Has Mr Wellington died? Purple class is sure he must have done when they find a skeleton sitting in his chair. Is this Mr Wellington's skelington? What will they say to the school inspector? This collection of stories is a perfect blend of cultural cross-fertilisations, imaginative flights of fancy, drama and humour.


Purple Class and the Skelington will make a good addition to the junior bookshelves; a great book to read aloud and for independent readers to discover and enjoy for themselves. School Librarian

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
