This three-book collection of Dominique Demers' zany, laugh-out-loud books (hugely popular in France) finds Miss Charlotte trying out new roles as a new teacher, a mysterious librarian and a football coach. Her madcap adventures are complemented by Horrid Henry illustrator Tony Ross' amazing artwork.
Miss Charlotte is the new teacher at school. She wears a large hat and a crumpled dress that make her look like a scarecrow, and she talks to a rock. The children think she's kooky, but they soon warm to her after being asked to measure the room with spaghetti and hearing her fascinating stories - including one about a gorilla.
In the second story, she is working as a librarian in the village of Saint-Anatole. With her eccentric style and alternative methods, she does things quite differently to the locals...
In the third story, Charlotte has been given the role of football coach and uses her weird and wonderful ways to prepare the children for the big match... By teaching them how to lose!
This collection includes books 1-3 in Dominique Demers' The Adventures of Mademoiselle Charlotte series Format: paperback
Miss Charlotte - the new coach of a children's football team - has some odd methods to prepare them for the big match. She decides to teach them to lose! And to have fun. Incredibly, it seems to work, as the kid who was always useless on the pitch suddenly scores a screamer in practice. But will their hopes of victory be dashed when the ambitious star player decides to join the other team? The latest instalment in Dominique Demers's popular Adventures of Miss Charlotte series, The New Football Coach, brilliantly illustrated by Tony Ross, is a marvellous tale about believing in yourself and beating the odds.
When the mysterious and eccentric Miss Charlotte arrives in the village of Saint-Anatole to take over the tiny library, the locals are surprised to find out that she does things differently. Wearing a long blue dress and a giant hat, she takes her books out for a walk in a wheelbarrow and shows the children that reading can be fun and useful. Sometimes she is so caught up in the magic of the stories she shares with her audience that she forgets all sense of reality - so much so that one day she loses consciousness and the children must find a way to bring her back.The second in Dominique Demers's popular The Adventures of Miss Charlotte series, The Mysterious Librarian, brilliantly illustrated by Tony Ross, is a wonderful story about the magical and inspiring power of books.
Mademoiselle Charlotte, the new teacher, is not like the others: she wears a large hat and a crumpled dress that make her look like a scarecrow, and she talks to a rock. The children think she is crazy at first, but soon realize she makes school more fun than ever, getting them to measure the room with cooked spaghetti in maths class, telling fascinating stories about a gorilla and even taking the pupils on at football.
