My mum loves penguins’ bums more than me. Otherwise she’d never dump me in some stuffy old school while she heads off to the Antarctic.
And it gets worse. When we arrive at St Grizelda’s School for Girls, the school’s had a drastic makeover. Gone are the uniforms, the rules, and… er, most of the pupils and staff. In their place is TOTAL CHAOS.
We’re greeted by a bunch of stampeding eight-year-olds, a head-butting goat and a crazy head teacher wearing a plastic-spoon crown.
Somebody get me OUT of here!

The story behind the dedication
“For everyone at Chestnuts School, with love from your pet author.”
I’m Patron of Reading (or Pet Author) at Chestnuts Primary School in North London. It’s a lot of fun… I go in and do sessions with all the different year groups, and have even hung out at their summer fair. (They do the BEST cakes there!)
