The Crabtree School series follows the adventures of five seven- and eight-year-olds at the best primary school in all of Great Britain. Come share some adventures with dreamy Ava, math whizz Zoe, sporty-but-girlie Rani, head girl Isabel and super-sleuth Lottie. These are early chapter books perfect for readers aged 5-9. Whilst they are great for reading with a grown-up, Lauren wrote them to encourage young children to read on their own.
Crabtree School is quite simply the best primary school in the whole world. Everyone says so. In fact, it’s so wonderful that last year’s Year Six class won’t leave! Now those pesky eleven-year-olds are clogging up the whole school. If Ava and her friends want to start Year Three properly they are going to have to make Crabtree a lot less lovely. Join dreamy Ava, super-spy Lottie, maths whizz Zoe and head girl Isabel as they make plans to ruin their perfect primary!
Eight-year-old Isabel is the best-behaved girl at Crabtree School, and she has a reward chart glittering with stars to prove it. She’s kind, helpful, organised, sensible… But the trouble is, no one seems to notice! Isabel’s tired of nice girls finishing last. But when she does the naughtiest thing anyone in Year Three can think of, has she gone too far? Will her friends stand by her, even at her worst moment?
Ava and Zoe are the bestest of best friends. Lottie and Isabel are the bestest of best friends. But what happens when new girl Rani joins Year Three at Crabtree School? Will Rani break up these two perfect pairs? Will Zoe’s best friend forever become her best friend for never? 6+ readers can join Zoe, Lottie, Isabel and Ava and Rani as they learn all about what being a good friend really means in this second Crabtree School story.
Seven-year-old Lottie knows everything about everyone. She snoops, she spies, she eavesdrops. But when the beloved Crabtree School cat goes missing, can the greatest detective in Year Three crack the case and find Lady Lovelypaws before it’s too late? It won’t be easy, but Lottie has a plan. The first step? A sleepover at Crabtree School! In the fourth instalment of the Crabtree series, readers can join Lottie, Ava, Zoe, Isabel and Rani for a bit of mystery and – of course – a midnight feast!
