Publisher: Frances Lincoln Children's Books

Review

Purple Class are back with more entertaining scrapes that highlight the funny side of primary school life.

There is never a dull moment when Jamal, Shea, Leon, Yasmin, Jodie and the others are involved, and the exasperated Mr Wellington is in charge. In The Half-Eaten Sweater, a former international cricketer visits to give the children some coaching in the game, but can Jamal behave himself well enough to be allowed to take part?

Shortlisted for the 2009 Roald Dahl Funny Prize, this is a hilarious school story sure to entertain any child.
