Stunning new package for this bestselling comedy. A boy, a bully and a serious case of mistaken identity from much-loved author Michael Morpurgo. School bully, Darren Bishop, is furious after he is out paced in the school race by that ‘little git’ – and he can’t have that now, can he? So when the ‘little git’ challenges Darren to a battle of courage, he thinks he can’t lose and can’t wait to show him who’s boss. See who turns out to be the chicken in this satisfying tale. Particularly suitable for reluctant, struggling and dyslexic readers.
