The trouble with sauce by Bruno Bouchet

Harper Collins. ISBN 978733325021.
(Upper primary) Recommended. A funny school story with a wonderful twist! A very cleverly devised story which initially will have parents and teachers wondering, but the plot evolves in an original and unexpected way. Jonty is the teachers' nightmare: smart, cocky and with his friend Boris are determined to make every teacher cry. And they are only in year seven! But the subversive Headmaster has other plans and so Jonty finds himself with only two people with whom he can talk. All the students have become model students and Jonty, Prune and the brain Nathaniel are determined to find out what is happening in their school. It's a well crafted story with many humorous and off beat situations. A good read for both students and teachers.
