Sometimes you’ve gotta bend the rules to straighten things out! The second book in the hilarious Elizabella series is middle-grade at its finest.

It’s the beginning of term for Elizabella and her gang, but instead of being a fresh start, it’s a rotten one. The school is falling apart and misery sets in when a big corporation takes over the tuckshop, leaving poor Miss Duck out of a job. Meanwhile, there’s a lice outbreak at Bilby Creek Primary and a competition to write the School Song. How will Elizabella deal with all of this? In true Elizabella style, of course!

Industry Reviews
Elizabella is a lot of fun, a bit quirky and very inventive. Underlying the drama of the corporatisation of the school are themes of identity, loyalty, community and the importance of family. Filled with lots of wonderful illustrations, songs and a re-write of Little Red Riding Hood by Elizabella and you have the perfect combination to captivate your 8+ reader. * Better Reading *

Zoe Norton Lodge conveys a sense of fun, quirkiness and drive in her characters, and includes themes of loyalty, identity, sense of community and building family relationships. The character sketches, additions of songs and a new version of Little Red Riding Hood add to the appeal of Elizabella and the Great Tuckshop Takeover.
This is an engaging story for readers from eight to eleven years, just right for a Middle Primary class novel leading to discussions about how one child can make a difference....Recommended
