Who or WHAT is Creature? Read an extract from the book…
Jake’s class finally has the best teacher in the whole world, Mr Hyde. He doesn’t make them clean toilet bowls with toothbrushes and his lessons are always fun.
There is just one teeny, tiny, HUGE problem.
Mr Hyde transforms into a naughty, little creature whenever he becomes upset. The creature has some amazing abilities but being well-behaved isn’t one of them!
Jake and his friends will have to work as a team to hide the creature, so they can keep their brilliant teacher. But their headmistress, Mrs Blunt, is never far off the scent . . .
Here’s a quick sneak peek from the book:
‘Oh, sorry. I forgot Granny was staying over,’ Jake mumbled.
‘Actually, she was supposed to be coming next week but she got her dates mixed up and—’
BRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING! The phone rang.
‘For heaven’s sake . . . ’ Mum went to answer it. Out of the corner of his eye, Jake spotted a small furry lightning bolt shoot past the kitchen door. Two seconds later, Connie waddled past at top speed, crying.
‘SILLY DOGGY! WON’T PUT NAPPY ON!’
Jake nearly dropped his Fruitloops.
‘Yes Alan, the paperwork’s ready . . . ’ Mum was saying. Jake edged out of the kitchen and ran down the hall. Where’d creature go? He heard a voice from the living room.
‘Is that you, Jakey? Where’s my kiss?’
He screeched to a halt outside the door.
‘Have you grown a beard, dear? Goodness, children grow up fast nowadays!’
Puzzled, Jake pushed the door open.
Creature was squatting on Granny’s lap, puckering up his lips . . .
