Product Description

Product Description

Stanley Stickle hates homework and he'll do almost anything to get out of it.

In this, the first short book in the series, Stanley gets a shock when he discovers that every pupil in the school is to be given EXTRA homework in preparation for the BIG TEST. Stanley is appalled at this assault on his human rights and will do just about anything to avoid the extra work. Stanley thinks up a cunning plan, a master plan, the best plan that anyone ever planned...ever. Only it doesn't quite work, so it's on to Plan B... then Plan C...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Read 26 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a fun read for children of all ages. I'm not in the target age group but my children are. The book made me laugh and I think it will be of great interest to readers who enjoy Horrid Henry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read for All 10 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Oh how my children related to this book. If Stanley Stickle put as much time into doing his homework as he did avoiding it he would be top of the class! How many of us can relate to the homework battles faced by childrena nd parents alike. My reluctant reader certainly related to this story and enjoyed reading it.

Aimed at children, but enjoyed by adults as well, this book is well written and fast moving, lifelike, funny and definately recommended!

I loved this! I'm definitely not in the target age range for it but it was nevertheless a really fun, pacy read and what a character Stanley is. You can't help liking him while knowing that things might not work out quite the way he planned. I chuckled at his manoeuvring to try and get ill so he could avoid extra homework and the Big Test and, as with all of Trevor's books, he injects a good dose of humour into the story with an incredibly deft touch. The Kiss scene had me laughing and squirming simultaneously, especially when Stanley had been thinking of the other things he'd rather do than kiss Soppy Sonia or be her boyfriend! This is a terrific, fun read for kids of all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've been stickled! 22 Dec 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a fun character Stanley is. Are children really this cunning? YES!!!! Whilst probably not in the target age range for this book, I loved it from the first page. Trevor Belshaw has created a character who we all know or have known and will love for years to come. I can't wait to read of more antics from Stanley. The artwork for the story is great too.

Stanley Stickle Hates Homework Review
By Caitlin Nedahl aged nearly 10

My Grandmother bought me the book Stanley Stickle Hates Homework by Trevor Forest.
I really enjoyed reading the book which is all about Stanley who will do anything to get out of doing his homework. He even kisses Soppy Sonia who just might have Chicken Pox so he can get out of doing a big test in school. In the end though, Stanley really does get ill with Scarlet Fever and this means that he misses the football that his Dad managed to get tickets for. Stanley suddenly realises that homework is not so bad.
This story made me laugh and I rate it 10 out of 10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Homework! 25 Sep 2012
By J.R.W.
Format:Kindle Edition
I think I enjoyed reading this as much as my friends boys loved listening to it! It brought back memories of some of the tantrums over homework that my now grown son used to employ; although he didn't go as far as Stanley Stickle.
Once again, Trevor Forest has produced an appealing storyline with a strong message; it pays to do your homework! Oh dear poor old Stanley has to learn the hard way.
I love the humour, and the boys quickly identified with the characters; Mr Handy the school caretaker, Allergy Allan and Mr Globe the geography teacher.
A great little story with the opportunity for reading dialogue out loud in a lot of funny voices (If you are so inclined!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Giggles all the way! 24 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I got this book for my 9 year old son knowing the title alone would grab him! He's not a fast reader and his attention span is that of a small insect but he read this in four days - that's super quick for him - and loved it. He thinks it's a perfect book for his age group and particularly liked all the 'gross bits' - his words not mine! It was great to see his attention held by something other than a computer game so, thank you Mr Forest!
