School can be pretty boring, unless you’re Alex and Emily. The two girls may be like chalk and cheese, but they manage to communicate across the classroom in a way that slips beneath the radar – most of the time at least! – by passing a secret journal under their desks. Emily talks about boys; Alex discusses the courtship rituals of bowerbirds. Emily talks about boys some more; Alex ponders on the love-life of the edible snail. Emily chats about fashion while Alex expounds on the feeding behaviour of the male fruit fly. And then of course there’s teachers, pranks, girlfriends and siblings.
More than just a girls’ book, Dr Snore, Period Six features the hilarious observations of two young friends – complete with their cartoons and drawings!
