By Roy Apps
Illustrated by Nick Sharratt
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,
How to Handle: Your Teacher is perfect for readers who love a good laugh (largely at the expense of teachers!).
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+.
