This latest addition to the “Wigglesbottom Primary” series from, Blue Peter award winning duo, Pamela Butchart and illustrator Becka Moor, sees 3 brand new short stories, where the Year 2 children run a race against a chicken at Sports Day, eat green toxic slime at lunch (it is really Halloween custard!) and discover that fellow pupil Anne Marie is an ant queen and one of her subjects is called Lady Gaga! Never a dull moment at Wigglebottom Primary, these short stories, with vibrant illustrations, are laugh out loud tales that help to engage young readers and build on their confidence as independent readers. Books in this series are always a popular choice for my two sons.
