Something's out of control in the classroom! Jake and his friends are competing in front of a crowd of thousands at the local football stadium. Well, maybe not thousands, but lots of their mums and dads are there. So when their brilliant teacher, Mr Hyde, turns into a mischievous little creature, how on earth are they going to keep his secret? There's only so long that they can pretend he's the team mascot, and he's certainly not going to play by the rules!
A book where all the pupils are supporting their teacher for once, Jake and his class form a compelling friendship group that readers will adore. Highly illustrated throughout with energetic artwork from David O'Connell, this hilarious story is a winner!
Sam Watkins voraciously consumed books from a young age, due to a food shortage in the village where she grew up. This diet, although not recommended by doctors, has given her a lifelong passion for books. She has been a bookseller, editor, and publisher, and writes and illustrates her own children's books. At one point, things all got a bit too bookish so she decided to be an art teacher for a while, but books won the day in the end. She has a five-year-old son, a yellow camper van called Daphne and six stick insects called Sticky. She can sometimes be found dangling from rocks or strumming her guitar at a campfire and singing silly songs about cockatoos. David O'Connell is a writer and illustrator living in London, UK. His favourite things to draw are monsters, naughty children (another type of monster), batty old ladies and evil cats! See his website scribblehound.com for more.
