A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.
Old Street School seems to live up to its title in this hilarious new series about Agatha Parrot and her very unusual school friends. There is something interesting and different about all the girls in her gang and their exploits at home and at school will delight all fans of Mr Gum not just because of the funny story but also because the Mr Gum illustrator has also illustrated Agatha Parrot.
Hiya! This book is about Odd Street School where I go along with mad Ivy who always jumps down stairs four at a time WAHOO! And Martha who is big and jolly and can sort out boys. The oddest teacher we've got is Miss Barking who wears goggles and gloves to use a pencil sharpener. The story is about when she tried to execute Martha with a floppy cardboard axe, but instead Martha's head floated off and exploded ha ha brilliant! Don't worry. Martha ends up eating an ice cream...but if you want to know how, then you'll have to read the insides, won't you? WOW how exciting - da-da-darrrrrrh! As well as stories you'll get the full gory guide to school life, such as Miss Barking's daft plan to hold a sports day without any winners, how to make the most of just having one line in the school play, the secret teacher beauty competition and how to cure a highly infectious outbreak of invisible spots. Hope you like it, and thanks for reading this Blurb!
'Agatha Parrot is the most exciting new character I've seen since Mr Gum, which is why we wanted to matchmake Kjartan with such a talented illustrator. I have high hopes for Agatha!' - Leah Thaxton, Senior Publisher
'An easy introduction to those starting to read novels rather than picture books.. It is the kind of slangy, irreverent book set at school and largely devoted to outwitting the wretched teachers that children find so funny.' - The Spectator

Agatha Parrot says: 'So far I've written out most of the words in my spelling book. I've also filled about 12 numeracy books, 9 literacy books and once did a project about how the sun makes plants grow which Miss Barking gave me a gold star for. This book took me AGES though! Well I didn't exactly write it, I just talked and the old man typed it out, but it took almost the whole afternoon. It would have been quicker if he hadn't kept stopping to check if he'd got any emails, but he never had. (What a loser!)' Kjartan ...More About Kjartan Poskitt
