This is a remarkable 52 page resource to support the remarkable new novel by Tim Harris (illustrated by James Hart) that children in Years 3 to 6 will not be able to put down because it is such a riotous romp about the antics that a class has with their rather unusual substitute teacher, Mr Bambuckle, "Mr Bambuckle's Remarkables".
Tim Harris and James Hart's new novel (published 2017) is so good, it was honoured by inclusion in the 2018 Children's Book Council of Australia notables list!!!
[I included that bit included for those who need extra assurance that this is a really great new kids' novel].
You will definitely require a copy of the novel to use this resource effectively...in fact, you will probably need more than one as the kids may hide them from you as the story is that good!!!
