Staying Alive in Year 5: Whatever Happened to School?

Author(s): John Marsden


Scott and his friends are simply staying alive in year 5 until their surprising new teacher, Mr Murlin, comes along.

Boring textbooks go into the bin, eating chocolate in class becomes compulsory and suddenly it's OK to be weird.

But Mr Murlin is not popular with everyone. . .

Staying Alive in Year 5 is a monster hit for primary school readers from one of Australia's most popular storytellers, John Marsden.
