Variety - that's the key to this chapter book. Lots of short stories, fast, choppy and lots of variety - ideal for bedtime and for reluctant readers.
Pizza Cake and other Funny Stories is a collection of good quality short stories with a little bit of everything, beginning with the fantasy of 'Saving Ms Fosdyke' where teachers earn a fortune and are traded round like footy players...
"Only the smartest, cleverest, most brilliant people get to be teachers."
... could not resist putting that line in!
I really enjoyed 'Draclia', in particular the comments about 'a world gone vampire mad', too true!
I loved the tongue in check humour of Morris Gleitzman in this collection of stories. His writing contains an off-the-wall imaginative quality that appeals to his readers. Combined with sharp observations and clever use of language Pizza Cake and the remaining nine funny stories are highly entertaining.
Harriet's Story, the final one in this collection, is the favourite at My Book Corner. Harriet ... well, she wakes up to find herself in her own story. Clever, witty ... genius, this one will have you grinning - no more hints, you need to read it!
