The Ostrich of Pudding Lane

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

Review

When Mad Iris, a large and crazy ostrich, escapes from a local farm, Ross and Katie decide that they have to look after her and keep her at their school, Pudding Lane Primary.

Iris becomes the school mascot and joins Ross and Katie's gang, enjoying three rowdy adventures in the book: fighting for good against evil (and school inspectors), featuring some sneaky bullies, a football match, cardboard elephant, and a love story, too.

The Ostrich of Pudding Lane is fun, frantic and extremely readable - plus there are scores of activities, jokes and games at the end to keep readers endlessly entertained.
