�Purple Class and the Skelington� forms the first of four books in Frances Lincoln�s newly launched fiction range for 8 � 12 year olds. These offerings bring to their genres the cultures and sensibilities of story-telling, diversity and illustration that Frances Lincoln have made their bench-mark amongst the picture book market.

Comprised of four short stories, this book is crammed full of zany and exuberant characters and the mishaps and mayhem that ensue in their everyday education. There is a perennial feel to the children presented here and readers will find it difficult not to relate, on some level, to at least one of the characters!

Sean Taylor casts an astute and an innately good-humoured glance at the practicalities of teaching young children and although members of Purple Class might not always take the most standard routes towards their learning, their experiences are meaningful and can only lead to heightened understanding, compassion and a resultant love of learning. Admirable in anybody�s eye surely�
