On my first day back at school
I met a girl called Lena.
Every time she acted mean
she laughed like a hyena.
There's something a little odd - a little weird about Lena. Could she be hiding a scary secret behind her schoolyard pranks and beastly laugh? It may take a committed band of courageous classmates to uncover the hideous truth.

About Sigi Cohen
His first book, My Dead Bunny, was shortlisted for the 2016 Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Awards. His second book Filthy Fergal, was published in 2018. His newest title, There's Something Weird About Lena, published by Walker Books in 2020, is a follow-up to My Dead Bunny.
James Foley started his illustration career in primary school, drawing cartoons for the school newspaper. The paper only lasted one issue - probably because his class used smoke machines to fake a fire in the school hall (though it did make the front page).
In the Lion was his first book with Walker, and it was selected for the International Youth Library's prestigious White Raven List. His latest, My Dead Bunny, was short-listed for the 2016 Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Awards.
James is in high demand as a speaker in schools and libraries across Australia. He is also an ambassador for literacy charities Room To Read and Books In Homes. He lives in Perth with his wife, son and labrador. www.jamesfoley.com.au, @jamesfoleybooks
