Title: Squidge Dibley
Author: Mick Elliott
Publisher: Hachette Australia
About the book: This book is about a grade-six boy whose world is turned upside down when a new teacher arrives – and a new student called Squidge Dibley causes mayhem in the classroom.
Padman O’Donnell tells the story, and it’s full of little illustrations.
Warning: the new teacher, Vice-Principal Hoovesly has many very silly rules.
What I thought: I thought this was very fun for an easy read and it flowed really well. It was a real page-turner and very exciting – I really liked the classroom setting and the different characters in Padman’s class.
I also like the sketchy, doodle style of the illustrations. If you like Diary Of A Wimpy Kid, or New Kid: Unpopular Me, I think you would like this one.
I recommend this book for ages 6-10, as it’s a really easy read.
