Aimed at children aged 7+, Grimwood: Attack of the Stink Monster is ideal for reading aloud to the class. The unpredictable humour will engage and further motivate pupils to read independently. ‘Awooga!’
I Really, Really Need a Poo by Karl Newson and Duncan Beedie is a great talking point for PSED topics and animal studies. Children may want to join in with the gassy sound effects. Expect many re-readings.
