Scott and his friends are just staying alive in year 5 until their surprising new teacher, Mr Murlin, comes along. Boring textbooks go into the bin, eating chocolate in class becomes compulsory and suddenly it's OK to be weird. But Mr Murlin is not popular with everyone... A thrillingly funny story for primary school readers from one of Australia's most popular storytellers, John Marsden.

What a great book for kids that don't want to read.


This book was great for my ADHD son that hates to read. He was upset that there weren't any pictures at first then as he read on... he realised that he could use his imagination. The characters in the book are forced to use their imagination and that really inspired him. We even read over the 20 min limit some times. YEAY!
