Weird School by Damian Callinan and Adele K. Thomas | Q&A with author Damian Callinan

Buy now: https://www.penguin.com.au/books/weird-school-9781760893446 Welcome to Wally Park Primary, the Weirdest School in Australia! This book is a weird and wonderfully funny story collection about Australia’s wackiest school. Some people think that all schools are the same. They might have different uniforms, slogans and emblems but in the end, there isn’t much difference between them . . . THESE PEOPLE ARE WRONG! They have not been to Wally Park PS. A normal day at Wally Park would be the weirdest day in any other school’s history. There's an annual Extreme Walkathon that is not for the faint-hearted, a talking Naughty Tree and an Out-of-Bounds Area you might truly never return from and the meanest (and most vain) principal in Australia. Keep everything crossed that your family is not moving to Wally Park anytime soon! #WeirdSchool #DamianCallinan #AdeleKThomas
