LoveReading View on There's a Snake in My School!

David Walliams has his finger firmly on the funny bone of the nation’s youth, and little children will love this story of school turned upside-down by an unexpected visitor. It’s bring-your-pet-to-school day, and a host of animals are ushered into the playground. By far the most unusual, brought in by Miranda, a girl who loves to be different, is a python! High jinks follow, wonderfully illustrated by Tony Ross, an artist who excels at depicting children behaving wildly, until the headmistress Miss Bloat puts her foot down. Whether that’s a sensible thing to do with a python will be revealed.  Containing just the right amount of anarchy and warmth and speaking directly to its readers, this is set to become a huge favourite. ~ Andrea Reece

Message from David Walliams:  “It was a joy working with Tony Ross on this new picture book, which I hope will amuse my young readers at bedtime.”
