You're going to love this one!!!! Especially the drawings. They are so cute and funny! My favorite part too. This is definitely worth 5 stars and I'd recommend it for kids and adults!
The mean-spiritedness of grown-up people never ceases to amaze me. And how could any teacher be so diabolically mean as to use, as an excuse for excluding a young girl called Pollyweena from the school choir, the excuse that it was a punishment for placing her wet pants on the classroom window sill to dry in the sun? Well, Miss Badger could!
When grown-ups become grown-up they seem to forget that they were just as outrageously fun-loving in their behaviour, and at least they should be generous when it comes to dealing with mischievous children. Instead, and maybe because they now envy the children their footloose and fancy free childhoods, they can become incredibly mean when they are in positions of power-- as teachers are (not forgetting Great Aunt Mabel, aka Auntie Mean Bum)-- over the children in their care. And we can all hark back to our own childhoods to a particular teacher who was just like that!
So does Pollyweena get to sing at the Opera house? The answer to this will amaze you. Of course she does, but there is a twist at the end. And you are going to have to buy this book for your chance to find out just what happened!
Polly and Gertie's class is getting ready for the singing festival which will take place in the Opera House the following week. Polly doesn't have a brilliant singing voice (nobody needs to be perfect, right?) and Gertie teases her about that a lot. Gertie sings beautifully, or at least this is what Polly says.
The teachers realize that Polly sings out of tune and they have to decide whether she should be allowed to sing at the festival. Finally they allowe her to sing in the Opera House under one condition...
However, the whole trip and the performance is in jeopardy when Aunt Mabel (the one who cooks horriblly) turns up on Friday afternoon to pick Polly up from school. This certainly is not what Polly needs because she has a big plan for the festival. To see what that is you must read the book.
"Rascals Sing at the Opera House" is the second instalment of Polly and Gertie adventures and, as in the first one, you are in for a real treat.
Patricia Puddle once again wrote a funny, entertaining and exciting book for both, children and parents (I think parents should definitely read it!!!).
You should also read Patricia's previous books, which are a fantastic read too.
This book was a fantastic read with one laugh after another. The writing was suitable for kids, but challenging enough to allow them to learn something along the way. I loved Polly. She's the perfect endearing little girl who just can't seem able to stay out of trouble. Would thoroughly recommend to both kids and adults who love to laugh.
