We all know stuff happens every day so it was about time for some new adventures to be added to the Stuff Happens book series. This time the spotlight is on Lennie, who argues with a teacher, and Cooper who goes on school camp; they are real-life stories that regular Aussie boys will recognise and love:
When Cooper’s grandfather dies unexpectedly he is not sure how to feel: he is angry because he misses his Pop, at the same time he is upset that he has missed the start of school camp. When he does make it to camp Cooper just wants life to continue the way it was, but everything seems different. It takes a frightening accident with a kayak and a night out in the woods for Cooper to come to terms with what has happened in Stuff Happens Cooper (RRP $9.99)
Stuff Happens Lennie (RRP $9.99) is my favourite book in the series so far, it felt like it was written about our own son. Lennie loves reading, learning and sharing his knowledge with other people, whether they like it or not. Mr. McDonnell, the relief teacher, and Lennie don’t exactly hit it off straight away and as always Lennie insists on being right all the time. It’s time for Lennie to learn that you don’t always have to be right or have the last word and that’s OK. Who will be the bigger person?
