Popular columnist and blogger Mrs Woog blows the lid off primary school in a hilarious but loving, no-holds-barred 'expose' of what really goes on inside the school gates.

Popular columnist and blogger Mrs Woog lifts the lid on a world that's part jungle, part nursery, a place both sweet and feral, where the rule of law is tenuous at best and primitive desires hold sway over order and discipline. And wait till you see the children!

We're talking about primary school, that special place where little kids turn into big kids, where letters turn into words, numbers turn into more confusing numbers and lunchboxes turn into bacterial breeding grounds. Where teachers rule (mostly) and parents realise primary school's not just for children - that they’re back at school too, just in different roles.

Having been a student during the Smurf, Swatch and Strawberry Shortcake era, and then a teacher in tough-as-nails South London and a back-of-Woop Woop country school, Mrs Woog knew her way around a primary school and thought nothing could surprise or intimidate her – until she became a primary school parent!

You'll laugh till lemonade comes out of your nose in this irreverent, hilarious, no-holds-barred and loving homage to primary school and all who dwell in it. Therapy for former teachers, a revelation to prospective parents, a trip down memory lane for us all, Primary School Confidential is a joy to read and essential homework for anyone interested in what really happens beyond the school gate.

About the Author

Mrs Woog a mouthy 40-something housewife from the burbs. She writes the popular blog Woog’s World which is about all kinds of things, mainly what is going on in her head. She cover family, politics, food, travel, some very lame attempts at fashion, social issues, wine, cheese. And laundry. She is pretty much running late all the time, and will more often or not turn up somewhere with food spilt down her top. Mrs Woog is married to Mr Woog, and they have two gorgeous yet lively sons. In a former life Mrs Woog was a primary school teacher.

          Loved this book! If you want a great laugh and an easy read, you must read this book. Mrs Woog takes you on a trip down memory lane attending primary school in Australia. I laughed out loud in so many parts of the book. Best part of all is I can read the author's blog to get another dose of hilarious reading. Looking forward to book number 2.
