Will is a young boy who doesn’t really like school and all the rules he has to follow, even though he has a very funny teacher called Mr. Boo. Mr Boo is actually a panda! A new girl starts in his school, and she shows Will all the fun things about his daily school life in Mr Boo’s class. Will realises that his school is cooler than he thought even though there are some rules to follow.
What are the rules in your school? Is your school cool like Will’s school?
