Mr. Meany, the name doesn't do him justice. Seriously what a great character and the kids characters made me reminisce about my own school days. My kids loved it and so did I. The author has got a wicked sense of humour and tremendous imagination. Being an educator myself, there's a few things that Mr. Meany does that I wouldn't mind trying myself. This has to be a future classic and we can't wait for the next instalment. Read it, you won't be disappointed.
