Top Secret

Jaqualine Chapman

Publisher:Random House New Zealand Ltd

Stevie and Jolie are a slightly unwitting comedy duo for readers 7-11. Jolie is the smart one who does his homework; Stevie is the kid who struggles a bit with maths and spelling and who's always asking, 'What homework?' When things get dull or difficult in Miss Hall's class, the boys start a running series of questions and ludicrous answers through the notes they pass to each other. The notes are quirky, crisp, and funny: often when the boys don't mean them to be. The comic energy of this little book is delicious: there is the deliberate, goofy, juvenile humour that kids will instantly recognise; as well as Stevie's atrocious spelling and maths, and the loopiness of some of his hare-brained ideas. There are brilliant moments of showdown between the teacher, Miss Hall, and the boys. (The boys have to write letters of apology as punishment for their note-passing shenanigans). A novel in notes for junior readers, this is a buoyant, light-hearted and mischievous book that will have immense appeal both as a read-aloud and as a read-alone. Illustrated throughout with Rebecca Cundy's quirky, lively drawings.
