Purple Class are back with four more entertaining stories that highlight the funny side of primary school life. There is never a dull moment when Jamal, Shea, Leon, Yasmin, Jodie and the others are involved, and the exasperated Mr Wellington is in charge.
In ‘The Half-Eaten Sweater’, a former international cricketer visits to give the children some coaching in the game, but can Jamal behave himself well enough to be allowed to take part? ‘The Non-Stop Fundraising Day’ finds Jamal and Shea being sponsored to keep silent for half an hour. Jodie is sure there is a werewolf stealing underwear at the outdoor centre Purple Class are staying at in ‘The Underwear Wolf’. And in ‘The Double-Chocolate Cake’ Mr Wellington receives a birthday surprise from his class.
Brilliantly written, Purple Class are a William and the Outlaws for today’s multicultural society.
