Sometimes you’ve gotta bend the rules to straighten things out! The second book in the hilarious Elizabella series is middle-grade at its finest.
It’s the beginning of term for Elizabella and her gang, but instead of being a fresh start, it’s a rotten one. The school is falling apart and misery sets in when a big corporation takes over the tuckshop, leaving poor Miss Duck out of a job. Meanwhile, there’s a lice outbreak at Bilby Creek Primary and a competition to write the School Song. How will Elizabella deal with all of this? In true Elizabella style, of course!
- Zoë Norton Lodge always wanted to write a book for children. And although her book Almost Sincerely and TV show The Checkout are geared towards adults, children are her biggest fans. A little bit naughty herself, Zoë is the perfect author to bring Elizabella to young readers everywere.
- Strong sisters with individual talents to share makes this series particularly life-affirming and family-focused.
- School and family settings makes this series accessible to all readers and themes of friendship, family loss and healing, acceptance, writing and language tricks as therapy, judging what's wrong, pets and pranks are appropriate for an 8 to 12 readership.
