Engaging and fun... welcome to world of Warts!
Custardly Wart: Pirate (third class) is the first or is that the second in a new series all about The History of Warts - and no, we're not talking about the horribly, nobbly, viral kind you get on your hands and knees... rather, the history of a particularly unfortunate family - the Warts.
Custardly is a young orphaned boy who lives in a horrid schoolhouse, run by the even more horrid and miserly, Miss Scrubshaw. His days, like all the boys and girls at Dankmarsh, are filled with dullness and being taught reading, writing and other boring subjects... until, one day, Miss Scrubshaw decides that she simply cannot manage both the running of the school AND the teaching of thirty or so ungrateful children and puts an advert in the local newspaper for a new schoolteacher. Life at Dankmarsh will never be the same again!
Full of humour and silliness akin to that of the Blart series; MacDonald creates a delightful new series for children aged 6-8. Accessible and bite-sized, Custardly Wart: Pirate will appeal to young boys who enjoy being a little bit dastardly!
