Head Kid is the perfect story for 8-12 year olds, and as our February book it was very popular with our Junior Book Club in Stillorgan Library. It's an exciting tale about the naughtiest boy in school, Ryan Ward, swapping bodies with the Head Teacher, Mr. Carter. The hilarious illustrations and funny scenarios which are described in detail will encourage reluctant readers to see out this adventure. As the new Head Teacher, Ryan re-writes the school rules and pandemonium ensues. In contrast, the strict Mr. Carter gains an important understanding of what it's like to be a student at Bracket Wood School. Surprisingly, there are some poignant moments in this book, but overall, it's great fun
