By Roy Apps

All the answers to your troublesome family and adult-handling questions!

Funny and fast moving, with just the right level of Dennis-the-Menace-type mischief,

Inside you'll find highly expert* advice to help identify teacher 'types', and hints about where teachers actually come from (I'll give you a clue, it's not Earth), plus support to get you through your S(PL)ATS.
There's also an exclusive look behind-the-scenes at what really goes on in the staffroom - oh, and some silly quizzes.

WARNING: contains daft material that kids might actually enjoy reading. Perfect for readers aged 7+.

*Written by a BAFTA award winning author, Roy Apps, and illustrated by Nick Sharratt - winner of the Nestle Book Award.
