Uncover the ridiculously funny life of teachers (and some things that have nothing to do with teachers but are still splendidly funny) according to James Campbell, comedian extraordinaire. Ever wondered what teachers do when they're not in the classroom? Are they undercover detectives, champion roller-blade dancers or do they spend their evenings playing with their 576 cats?

This face-achingly funny book will also teach you why you should carry an emergency banana with you at all times, how to fart in class silently without anyone knowing it was you and how to catapult yourself to school by building a medieval style catapult in your back garden!

Whether you love or loathe your teachers, want to become one when you grow up or don't give two figs about your teacher but simply love a HILARIOUS read, this book is for you. Prepare to roll around the floor laughing with the snot-inducingly brilliant The Funny Life of Teachers.

But be warned - this is NOT a normal book. You can read it forwards, backwards, sideways and in approximately 861,000 different ways in between. Whichever way you read it, look no further for fantastic real-life teacher facts, incredibly funny illustrations, imaginary stories and an impossibly silly read!

About Professor James Campbell

James Campbell decided to be a writer when he was seven, once he had decided that he could not be a duck. James travels around primary schools, telling stories and encouraging children to write their own stuff. He spends lots of weekends around the country at literary festivals or in theatres, doing his one-man show (as a stand-up comedian). He even visit schools with his hilarious comedy and has sold out many events, including his show at the Royal Festival Hall. He talks about funny things in a funny way that children seem to like! James is the author behind the hilarious The Funny Life of Pets.

Rob Jones is an extremely funny young illustrator. In May 2015, his first book Bernard won The People's Book Prize. When he's not drawing, he makes toys and puppets (mostly characters from his books). Rob is the brilliantly fun illustrator behind The Funny Life of Pets.
