He is whimsical, magical, silly, imaginative and a whole lot mysterious, but most of all you know he’s got your back. Mr Bambuckle is the teacher everyone wants except for Miss Frost and Principle Sternblast.
The book flows well and has been well crafted by Meredith Costain. Olivia is endearing but with a little mischievousness on the side which adds depth to the character. Her inquisitive nature is what makes her such a fun and likable character.
This is my first encounter with Friday Barnes and if this book is anything to to go by, Friday is always disappearing, investigating and getting into all sorts of scrapes that challenge the patience of her teachers and the headmasters, both old and new.
