According to head teacher Mrs Bottomley-Blunt, 4B is the WORST CLASS IN THE WORLD. She says school is not about footling or fiddle-faddling or FUN. It is about LEARNING and it is high time 4B tried harder to EXCEL at it. But Stanley and Manjit didn’t LITERALLY mean to make their whole class sick with homemade biscuits. And they definitely didn’t LITERALLY mean for Manjit’s dog Killer to eat their teacher’s shoes or for Bruce Bingley’s rat to escape. These things just happened even though they had a FOOLPROOF plan.
You see, 4B may be the WORST CLASS IN THE WORLD. But you wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.
Highly illustrated by the brilliant Rikin Parekh and featuring two hilarious madcap adventures in one book, this series is just right for children ready for their first chapter books.
