Pamela Butchart Pair

Could your teacher be an alien? Do you like zany stories like Mr Gum? Read on. Two nutty schoolyard comedies full of funny thrills and cheeky kids like you! If you go to primary school, you’ll know it can be a crazy place. The sort of place where a spaceship might touch down. So when Izzy’s teacher starts being weirdly nice, Izzy knows she’s been taken over by aliens. Even school dinners aren’t safe. Not just because they’re horrible, but because of the spy in the canteen! As funny as Roald Dahl. If school was always this wild, no one would ever want to go home.
