The Tuckshop Kid
|Author:||Pat Flynn; Tom Jellett (Illustrator)|
Hungry? Need Lunch? Mum's packed you curried banana and pickle sandwiches again? Only got a $1.25 to your name? Then you need to see Matt, because Matt has an amazing talent . . . Some kids are good at footy, or handball, or tennis. Not Matt, though.Matt is an expert at Tuckshop.($1.25 = sausage roll and small choc milk, by the way . . . )In the dog-eat-pie world of the playground, when your best friend is the lunch lady, and hunger can be just around the corner, someone like Matt can go a long way.But of course, being the best at anything does have its problems.Even tuckshop.
