Synopsis

Agatha Parrot is the most exciting and hilarious comedy series since Mr Gum! But don't take our word for it . . . take hers!



Hiya! This book is about Odd Street School where I go along with mad Ivy who always jumps down stairs four at a time WAHOO! And Martha who is big and jolly and can sort out boys. The oddest teacher we've got is Miss Barking who wears goggles and gloves to use a pencil sharpener.



The story is about when she tried to execute Martha with a floppy cardboard axe, but instead Martha's head floated off and exploded ha ha brilliant! Don't worry. Martha ends up eating an ice cream... but if you want to know how, then you'll have to read the insides, won't you? WOW how exciting - da-da-darrrrrrh!



As well as stories you'll get the full gory guide to school life, such as Miss Barking's daft plan to hold a sports day without any winners, how to make the most of just having one line in the school play, the secret teacher beauty competition and how to cure a highly infectious outbreak of invisible spots. Hope you like it, and thanks for reading this BLURB!



Written by the hottest new prospect in children's books, Kjartan Poskitt, and illustrated by the artistic genius behind Andy Stanton's Mr Gum, David Tazzyman, Agatha Parrot is more brilliant than you could possibly imagine. Seriously - Try to imagine it. Nope, not even close. Anyway, it's the funnest of funny children's books.

Kjartan Poskitt When Kjartan was young he used to play pianos, present tv science shows and invent puzzles. After that he wrote the Murderous Maths books along with lots of other books about magic, space and pants. Then when he got old, a girl called Agatha Parrot asked him to help write down stories about her life. Agatha says: 'So far I've written out most of the words in my spelling book. I've also filled about 12 numeracy books, 9 literacy books and once did a project about how the sun makes plants grow which Miss Barking gave me a gold star for. This book took me AGES though! Well I didn't exactly write it, I just talked and the old man typed it out, but it took almost the whole afternoon. It would have been quicker if he hadn't kept stopping to check if he'd got any emails, but he never had. (What a loser!)' David Tazzyman David Tazzyman is now one of the most popular illustrators in children's books. He is perhaps most famous for his work on the Agatha Parrot and Mr Gum series, for which he has won awards such as The Roald Dahl Funny Prize and the Blue Peter Book Award. David lives in South London with his girlfriend, Melanie, and their son, Stanley. He grew up in Leicester, studied illustration at Manchester Metropolitan University and then travelled around Asia for three years before moving to London in 1997. He likes football, cricket, biscuits, music and drawing. He still dislikes celery.
