Ill. by Mitch Vane. Walker Books, 2018. ISBN 9781760650278
(Age: 7+) Highly recommended. "This is what happened during Little Lunch: Tamara tried to find a new walking buddy for the school walkathon. Rory decided he was going to be Prime Minister of the whole country and the girls got into a big noisy argument and wound up locked inside the toilets. A lot can happen in fifteen minutes." (Publisher)
This book contains three funny stories that will keep even the most disengaged reader enthralled from the start to the end of each story. I have read a number of these stories aloud to various classes ranging from Year 2 upward and they absolutely love them. I love the quirky names the author uses and the incidental illustrations interspersed throughout the text. Children who are familiar with the show on TV will also like the photos of the characters. The stories present usual school problems that will resonate with many.
The books are in high demand in the library and rarely on the shelves. Suitable for students aged 7 and up.
I can not recommend these highly enough.
