Overview

Miss Gilhoolie is one cool teacher. She wears diamonds in her hair, decorates the classroom in spangly colors, and actually manages to make school really interesting. But mad Mr. Bang Bang Jones, the horrible headmaster, is on a mission to get her sacked. The award-winning Hilary McKay has here created an extraordinary school filled with the kind of smart, feisty children you just wish had been your own best friends. As they fight to save their favorite teacher from the axe, Simon, Madeline, and Dougal bicker and banter like every other child, each dealing with their own problems yet at the same time letting their intelligence and wit sparkle and save the day.
