Class 4F is a mighty challenge for any teacher, with One-Eyed Eileen's gang of freaks and their naughty antics. But Miss Corker (alias Miss Schnorkel) works out a clever way to handle them. From the creator of Old Tom and Horrible Harriet, and inspired by 25 years of teaching, comes another unforgettable cast of hilarious characters.
It's Miss Corker's first day at her new school (in fact, it's her first day at any school) and she is looking forward to meeting her class ...
Leigh Hobbs turns his sharply observant eyes to the oddballs and misfits in Grade 4 in this absolutely hilarious illustrated story for 7-11 year olds.
Praise for Hooray for Horrible Harriet:
'There's something universally appealing about all Hobbs' creations, whether Old Tom, Fiona the Pig or Angela Throgmorton. In the case of Harriet, Hobbs can take a bossy, alienating, frightening character and make her completely irresistible. It's remarkable how much emotional range he conveys in a few brush strokes: boredom, sarcasm, sadness, vulnerability and triumph. The words are equally strong and never get swamped by the frantic action of the illustrations.'
