Product description

Tim has the most boring family in the world. There’s no way that sparkly Sophie, the most gorgeous girl in his class, is ever going to look at him. School is really boring too, because they have to follow a very boring timetable set by Mr Dedman, the head. But everything changes when day-glo graffiti starts appearing in school: graffiti about chickens. THIS BUILDING IS FULL OF CHICKENS; DEDMAN’S CHICKEN FACTORY, and so on. Who is writing them? Why is Mr Dedman so furious? And why has Tim’s father started dressing up as Wonder Woman? Full of delicious sideswipes at the school routine, this glorious romp won’t just have pupils chuckling, but teacher cracking up too!
