The Galloping Ghost Review

Classic Fiction Featured Books for 7+ readers

Shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Book Prize 2009

Another brilliantly funny story from an incredibly funny author. Josh is not impressed when he has to write a poem for homework so he decides to ‘borrow’ one from a book. His teacher is impressed, so impressed in fact that he is sent on a poetry course, which means missing his favourite activity – football. And Josh is even less amused when he discovers the person running the course is the man who wrote the poem he stole. Josh is in more trouble than you can imagine.

Josh cheats on his homework, and copies a poem. But it's too good: everyone thinks Josh is a genius and he is sent on a poetry course. Worse still, the tutor is the ghost of the man whose poem he stole, and he isn't happy!
