Hannah Peck, Ben Manley
Everyone says Peter is the baddest boy in school. He likes strange food, wears strange clothes and does strange things. In fact, Peter isn’t like anyone the other children have ever met. So when the class gerbil goes missing, Lucy lets Peter take the blame, even though she knows it wasn’t anything to do with him… An insightful story about prejudice, friendship and redemption during one truly unforgettable Halloween.
"Funny and profound in equal measure, this is a top-class Halloween hoot for children but also a salutary warning against prejudice" * The Echo (Cork) * "Bags of child-appeal. . . a story about differences, expectations and perspectives" * Books for Keeps * "Beautifully told... Original, memorable, and lots of fun" -- Andrea Reece * LoveReading4Kids * "This book should have a place in every early years' classroom as a way into talking about "difference", the importance of "owning up", not being quick to blame, and how friends are important" -- David Mallett * The School Librarian * "Funny flourishes in both text and art abound" * Publishers Weekly *
