The Peski Kids 4: Near Extinction




Dinosaurs will be glad they’re extinct once they’ve had a visit from The Peski Kids!

The annual geography excursion was supposed to be educational, but with The Peski Kids on board it soon turns into chaos. April tries to smash her way out of a moving bus, Fin gets his head bitten by a dinosaur, Joe finds himself carrying around a beautiful girl with two fake sprained ankles and Loretta gets over enthusiastic with a butane torch. That’s all before the criminals turn up and hijack the school bus.

The Peski Kids are going to be in so much trouble . . . if they make it back to Currawong alive.

Praise for The Peski Kids 4: Near Extinction

“Readers may rest assured that this latest episode in The Peski Kids once again passes the snort-laugh test with flying colours. There is something truly inspired about these completely kooky characters.”

Sue Warren, Just So Stories

“The smart play with language and meaning is perfect for the upper primary child. We want our readers to be exposed to rich vocabulary. The book demands active thinking too . . . Even though The Peski Kids: Near extinction seems to be about tough, naughty kids who go against the grain, it is also about love, family, right and wrong and shades of grey.”

Wendy Jeffery, Read Plus
