Read on to see what else she had to say.
by Robert Favretto, Illustrated by Kevin Burgemeestre
Reviewed by Anastasia Gonis
This chapter book for younger readers is clever and entertaining due to the marvellous play on words that is used throughout, and the terrific illustrations produced by the multi-talented Kevin Burgemeestre. It’s the kind of book kids love to read – full of nonsensical barbs, and smart-mouthed conversation. It comes highly recommended for reluctant readers.
Rhys has detention for not showing interest in his Writing
assignment. Bored out of his head and with not even a floating thought of what to write about, a ball comes through the widow, shattering both his thoughts and the glass. A brilliant idea enters his head, breaking his day-dream.
The story flows through him at great speed. It takes on a peculiar, detailed form. It includes the class suck-up Alex, and Alex’s well-known, over-used story about the fish that got away, and an incredible but hilarious cat tale with a strange twist.
