Australia's funniest new author for kids is back with a fresh batch of stories about the mysterious Mr Bambuckle and the class of room 12B.

I wish Mr Bambuckle would come back.
Who will cook us breakfast now?
Miss Frost gave me detention just for answering a question.
Mr Bambuckle said I’m about to discover magic – but how?
There are some pretty strange things going on.
It’s almost as if Mr Bambuckle could hear us . . .

Miss Frost says discipline is the new order, but not if the class in room 12B has anything to do with it . . .


Tim Harris kicks another goal with this continuation of the hilarity of Mr Bambuckle’s remarkable class . . . Highly recommended for readers from around 8 years upwards – I believe this is one series that will really grab those reluctant readers.

A rambunctious and hilarious read. My Year 4 students loved having this book read aloud to them and they rolled around laughing at its silliness and unexpected twists and turns ... Written in a similar humorous style to the Treehouse series or David Walliams books, these novels are a fun read for beginning novel readers or reluctant readers.


There is no denying this book is fun, and looking at it from the perspective of an adult I feel like it teaches us that sometimes we need to step back and make learning fun because we all learn differently. We all need a dose of Mr Bambuckle! ... I highly recommend this read and while there are many funny books out in the market at the moment for this age group, this is right on top as one of the best.

A crazy, unpredictable and often hilarious novel.

Another rip-roaringly awesome tale about the mysterious Mr Bambuckle and the class of room 12B.
