The book is about a boy whose mum is released from prison on probation but she has had no money or food since the boy’s dad left her. After a few days his mum made a mistake and got sent back to prison. After that, he thinks the only person or living thing he can trust are his pet rats called Venon and Vulture. He makes a plan to get back at his neighbour because he thinks his neighbour is to blame for his mum going back to prison but, after a tragic accident, he soon realises that his neighbour wasn’t to blame.

I would recommend the book for students in Years 4 – 6. It is generally a good book and it helps you learn to accept things that are beyond your control.

What People Say About Us

We picked the school because of how diverse it is. They strike the balance between keeping the education high with a student body that better reflects the city (Ugandan and expat alike). They manage to create the inclusive atmosphere that we promote at home.
