(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Leigh Hobb's is Australia's Children's Laureate 2016-2017...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...'a world of barely contained anarchy, borderline menace and irresistible humour It's reassuring to think that the truly anarchic tradition in children's literature is still being honoured' Brisbane's Child, Sydney's Child..'a perfect read for reluctant readers with a zany sense of humour' Sunday Star Times..'one of the most profound, moving and monumental children's books that has ever been written. This never-before-told story of grade 4F will change your life A classroom of freaks is an inspired idea allows his anarchic and outrageous funny drawings to carry the day.' The Age..'In magnificent, minimal sketches the pupils of 4F leap from the pen of Melbourne illustrator and author Leigh Hobbs and elbow their way on to the page Parents are likely to enjoy the cleverness of the drawings and text as much as children.' Courier Mail..' 4F for freaks Hobbs's skill as artist and author is evident here. He has created a cast of unpleasant characters who appeal even as they repel. He uses alliteration and rhyme to powerful effect. The conclusion is superb, with a twist that leaves the reader pondering who has really won.' Sunday Morning Herald..'unputdownable' Single Parent Bible..'packed full of the author's distinctive, bizarre, cartoon characters Young fans of Leigh Hobbs will readily take to the terrible 4F and their mischievous pranks, however, I suspect quite a few older readers will have a chuckle or two as well.' Magpies Vol 21..'politically incorrect - fabulously awful.' Weekend Australian
