In recent years when I have filled in between gigs doing some relief teaching at least a couple of the ‘books that drive kids crazy’ were in my bag to use particularly as a ‘warm up’ and without fail they were such a hit with the audience that the kiddos were putty in my hands, especially with the promise of another later in the day.

It would be hard to pick a favourite but I can say unequivocally that Did You Take the B from my -ook?  would reduce my listeners to paroxysms of laughter as they joined in, almost howling.

Now readers can enjoy the hysteria of five of these super titles in one volume and if I were still doing that occasional relief teaching this would definitely be staying on my shelves.

Whether  you are adding this to your school collection or your personal one, or perhaps as a gift to a little human of your acquaintance this will be such a welcome relief and opportunity for some superlative light relief.

Highly recommended for small to medium humans from around 3 years upwards.
