Being on home dinners gives Aidan the chance to make some money... A bridesmaid and a page chase a runaway wedding cake... Mia and her Dad turn detective...
These are just some of the tales in Rob Keeley's new collection. You can also read about the strange new craze started by Erin, the mystery guest at the school reunion, and more from Liam and Justin. Plus, Beech Class find themselves in charge of the whole school for a day, as they give the teachers a taste of Pupil Power... There are even seven bonus stories of just seven words each!
Rob Keeley's unique combination of traditional children's storytelling techniques with awareness of the world in which young people now live creates nine more highly accessible stories for children today. Reviews have recognised Rob's ability accurately to convey peer group interaction, classroom interaction and family relationships, within the context of the well-observed and humorous short story.
The Dinner Club and Other Stories sees a slight shift away from the fantasy elements of previous books to a style of story more rooted in the here and now. However, all the most popular characters and set-ups from the first two books are present here, along with many new characters and some innovative storylines.CPSIA choking hazard - No choking hazard warning necessary|EU Toy Safety Directive - No warning
