Product description

From the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, the Best Book for Younger Readers – Red House Children’s Book Award, the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 5 – 12 year-olds and the Blue Peter Best Story Book Award 2013, comes the ninth amazing instalment of this brilliant series!

TIPS FOR BEING TOP OF THE CLASS (Sadly…I did NONE of these things.) 1. Stay awake in lessons (it helps.) 2. Don’t draw HILARIOUS pictures of your teachers. 3. AVOID the class bully to stay out of trouble. 4. Don’t let Mum and Dad write ANYTHING in your school planner. 5. Don’t let your grumpy sister Delia BOSS you around. (Technically not a school issue – but still important.)

I’m TRYING to get voted onto the school council as well – but thanks to the ABOVE list it’s not exactly going to plan.
