‘This is the perfect read for Halloweâ€™en!
What I liked:Â The relationship between Buttercup and her grandmother, a granny as a kick-ass main character, the quirky humour, the illustrations which really add to your enjoyment of the text.
Even better if:Â Perfect just as it is!
How you could use it in your classroom:Â This would be a good recommendation for any fans of Roald Dahl, David Walliams or Andy Stanton (Mr Gum) due to the quirky, dark humour. It is also a very accessible text because of the spacing between the text and the illustrations so this might be a good recommendation for any reluctant readers or those lacking in confidence.’
