Aidan Abet, Teacher’s Pet

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

Aiden is a target for school bullies. The only way he can survive is to suck up to the teacher so they protect him. When a new teacher starts, he cannot seem to win her over - until he offers to look after the large amount of animals she brought for her classroom.

But there is something strange about these animals - the gerbils spell out words with their droppings, the snails draw pictures with their slime, and the snake contorts its body into letters. Can Aiden overcome his fear of the creatures to figure out what is going on?

Not only is this story an easy read and dyslexia friendly, it is a fun-filled mystery with a great twist. Readers won't know who to root for as the tale develops.
