This is a great book choice if your reader:

  • Is building their confidence with chapter books. 

  • Needs a series that will support reading independently and build reading stamina.

  • Likes stories about a class at a primary school. 

  • Enjoys stories with a class baddie, who makes everyone's life a misery, getting their comeuppance.  


Blurb: As a rule, magic carpets don't turn up in schools, but this is exactly what happens when Class Three's new teacher flies in through the classroom window and lands on the floor with a bump.


Imagine the excitement if your child had a wizard for a teacher! Mr. Majeika, a 1980s classic, still feels relevant today, tackling friendship issues at school. 


Despite all his good intentions to be a teacher who does not do any magic, it seems that Mr Majeika's loss of patience means his wizardly background can't stay hidden. When dealing with a badly behaved Hamish Bigmore, Mr Majeika unintentionally casts spells he thought he had long forgotten, such as changing Hamish into a frog! And to everyone's delight, it looks as if Hamish will have to remain a frog because Mr Majeika can't remember the spell to turn him back again! With Mr Majeika in charge, suddenly life at school becomes much more exciting.
