It's hard to be good when your head is practically exploding with schemes! The hilarious Elizabella series is middle-grade fiction at its finest.

Elizabella – ten and a quarter – is a Poet, Fixer of Fairytales and the biggest prankster in the history of Bilby Creek Primary. And when her plans involve making a swimming pool in the playground without consulting a single teacher, the students are behind her every step of the way. But what happens when Minnie, an even bigger prankster, shows up? Can Bilby Creek handle them both? And more importantly, can they handle each other?


Life is never dull when Elizabella is around! Her overactive imagination comes up with the most awesome ideas. Which everyone, except the principal, seems to love.

Join Elizabella as she makes a swimming pool filled with juice, sparks a romance between the canteen lady and the principal, and learns to get along with the new girl Minnie.

This is a thoroughly enjoyable story that your students will love. Fun characters and a school setting make this a book that your students will relate to. With lots of laugh out loud moments, this is a fun book to read and will suit those in Year 4 and up.
