Staying Alive in Year 5/Marsden, John/Paper/1742613497/S033-D
Pan Macmillan Australia
There were cries of surprise all over the room, as kids lifted their desktops. Every desk was full of water and rocks and fish and coral reefs. Scott and his friends are Staying Alive in Year Five. Their new teacher, the marvellous Mr Murlin, makes school something to look forward to. He changes the rules so that learning is fun: it's compulsory to watch 'Neighbours', eat chocolate and talk in class. One day they have a lesson up a tree, all twenty-eight of them! But Mr Murlin is not popular with everyoneà
Not only those in Year 5 but students of all ages will enjoy this sensitive and amusing story by John Marsden, winner of the 1988 Children's Book of the Year Award. John Marsden is one of the new breed of Australia's writers for young people: lively, fresh, provocative. Many young readers actually turn off the TV and leave their computer games to go and read John's books. And, for a number of them, they are the first books they voluntarily read.
