Welcome to Harvey N. Trouble Elementary School, where nothing is ordinary and everything is extraordinary, wacky or even bizarre!
In this hall of learning, the confusion and chaos begin each Monday morning and continue until the final bell on Friday afternoon. Under the “leadership” of Principal Miss Ingashoe, Secretary Miss Celia Seeyalater and Custodian Iquit, events unfold at a furious pace, cheerfully aided and abetted by students such as Ron Faster, Chuckie Upkins, Adam Up, Sid Down, Oopsie Spiller, Abby Birthday, Izzy Normal, Dewey Haveto and Gladys Friday.
The book relates one particular week in the school, beginning with a school bus stuck in a ditch.
Readers will discover that no classroom, even the kindergarten room, is exempt from the constant madcap mishaps and misadventures which occur in this unusual school.
Kate McMullan’s hilarious chapter book will highly entertain children who enjoy quirky humour and “wordplay” (which is non-stop in this book), especially puns and homonyms. Embellished with George Booth’s comic-style illustrations, School! Adventures at the Harvey N. Trouble Elementary School would be a good choice for a classroom read-aloud, for readers who enjoy graphic novels or for reluctant readers. (Elements of the story which are repeated from chapter to chapter would further enhance the appeal to reluctant readers.)
Interviews with the author and the illustrator plus some wordplay activities are provided at the end of the book.
Kate McMullan, a former elementary school teacher, has written over 50 books for children, including the popular “Dragon Slayers Academy” books.
