Listen to Coronavirus Patient Zero
Bradley Chalkers IS the oldest kid in the fifth grade. He tells enormous lies. He picks fights with girls. No one likes him--except Carla, the new school counselor. She thinks Bradley is sensitive and generous, and knows that Bradley could change, if only he weren't afraid to try. But when you feel like the most-hated kid in the whole school, believing in yourself can be the hardest thing in the world. . . .
An outbreak of infectious giggles that close a school for the day, a magic Christmas pudding that takes over a house, an apple-green pig that starts gobbling up little boys - these are just some of the strange and bizarre things that happen in this wonderfully funny collection of new stories from Elaine Forrestal, one of Australia's best-known writers for children.
