So, you say, what could be better than a new Morris Gleitzman book? A bumper book with three books in one plus a bonus brand new story – that’s what!

Give Peas a Chance, Pizza Cake and Snot Chocolate line up for what can only be described as laughter exploding out of every page. Whether it’s on the sporting field as rival kindy histories flare into full on rages or a dog daring to go where no other dog has gone before, there will be a steady flow of snorts and guffaws. And just to kickstart the fun readers will love Zac’s circular day and talking appliances, not to mention Woody the mouse with his starring role.

Without a doubt the stand out for me would have to be Saving Ms Fosdyke – I’m thinking I might need to get an agent if I’m going to get traded to another school, even an underprivileged one, for $50 million!

Morris’ books have long been solid favourites with the middle to upper primary crowd and with Christmas coming up this super edition chockful of hilarity would make a great stocking stuffer.
