Nicholas and the Wild Ones
Publisher: Frances Lincoln Children’s Books
Nicholas's first day at school didn't go well. Charlie jumped on him. Reggie gave him a wedgie. Jake snatched his snack. And Cindy Crocker shoved him aside. Nicholas didn't want to go back.
How could he cope with the Wild Ones? Gramps told him to use his fists, but gran said to find a better way. So when children laughed at Cindy's wobbly pink picture, kind Nicholas let her fly his paper solar-powered helicopter. Then all the Wild Ones wanted one, too!
Starting school is a challenge - and a gang of rough, tough bullies doesn't make it any easier. But Nicholas uses his inventive talents to get the Wild Ones on side in this positive, humorous story.
