Uncle Gobb and the Dreaded Shed
by Michael Rosen
illustrated by Neal Layton
Shortlisted Little Rebels Award 2016
As the back cover reads, "A completely bonkers book that is not linked to Gobb Education at all". Malcolm is a sensible 10-year-old full of sensible questions. Which leads to one or two clashes with Uncle Gobb, Uncle Gobb's world views and his dreaded shed. Two artists known for their comic touch combine forces to deliver an anarchic story which exposes and shames, hilariously, many aspects of contemporary culture but, in particular, recent educational policies. All done so in a way which nods knowingly to both adults and children. Age 7-10, Paperback 203pp
