    It's hard to be good when your head is practically exploding with schemes! The hilarious Elizabella series is middle-grade at its finest. Elizabella - ten and a quarter - is a Poet, Fixer of Fairytales and the biggest prankster in the history of Bilby Creek Primary. And when her plans involve making a swimming pool in the playground without consulting a single teacher, the students are behind her every step of the way. But what happens when Minnie, an even bigger prankster, shows up? Can Bilby Creek handle them both? And more importantly, can they handle each other?

    Gleebooks review:
    The greatest curse of 10¼-year-old Elizabella is also one of her best attributes: she is a Very Gifted Prankster with a Very Impressive Imagination. Who else would have envisaged the school sand pit as a swimming pool, or inveigled other students into converting it? Elizabella is also a poet, a generous friend and a lovable character known for her escapades, but maybe even her mischief will be eclipsed by the subversive pranks of new girl Minnie. Running counter to Elizabella’s life at school is her close family life with her dad and her brother—remarkably forbearing in the wake of Elizabella’s jokes: can a haiku apology make up for those? With hints of Cynthia Voigt’s Bad Girls (now out of print), this first in a new series is infectiously funny, evoking a sneaking admiration of the wayward heroines and their unusual rivalry.
