All skools make some sort at teaching the pupils things and the headmaster pin up a huge timetable of lessons ect. which make the heart sink when you look at it. Nigel Molesworth is back, this time taking the tinies in hand and showing that they can survive the first term - as long as you avoid the prefects and show all due respect to Molesworth 1. Back to Skool might be particularly hard on Mater and Pater, but think of those poor new bugs, forced to be their best at Latin, English, foopball and French (Armand in his striped shirt and feeble questions). Just follow his timeless advice, however, and you too could be Topp.
Presents a collection of stories, including "Great Day for Up," "I Am Not Going to Get Up Today!," "I Wish That I Had Duck Feet," "Maybe You Should Fly a Jet! Maybe You Should Be a Vet!," and "Wacky Wednesday," along with "Would You Rather Be a Bullfrog?"
Children love jokes, so what could be a greater encouragement to reading than a BOOK OF RIDDLES? Every turn of a page brings a hilarious answer to a delightfully silly question fro beginning readers age 5-8. 'I can read it all by myself' is the Beginner Books motto, and behind it is an understanding of how important it is for children to take pride and pleasure in their early reading. Beginner Books have been designed to appeal directly to children through the use of humour, rhyme, and bright pictures that can be 'read' even by the non-reading child. Some Beginner Books are simple stories, others are hilarious nonsense: both types have been designed to give children confidence and make them want to go on reading.
