'Please, sir. The apple isn't rubbish . . . it's for the birds.'
In a country town, in a school just like yours, the kids in Class 6A tell their stories.
There's Mick, school captain and sometimes trouble-maker, who wants to make the school a better place, while his younger brother Jacob just wants to fly. There's shy and lonely Laura who hopes to finally fit in with a circle of friends, while Pete struggles to deal with his grandpa's sudden death. Popular Selina obsesses over class comedian Cameron, while Cameron obsesses over Anzac biscuits and Pookie Aleera - whoever that is!
For new teacher Ms Arthur, it's another world, but for Mr Korsky, the school groundskeeper, he's seen it all before.
Award-winning author Steven Herrick's latest verse novel is a heart-warming tale about friendship, grief and the importance of baked goods.
