Awesome!  Cool!  Extremely funny!  Surprising!  This is the best book EVER!  My mum read this to me on holiday and I didn't want her to stop!  The book is about a brilliant, cool teacher who, when he gets angry, turns into a creature!!!! The class like the teacher so much that it is their job to hide him from the awful head teacher, Mrs Blunt, so that she never finds out he turns into a creature.  In this book you read about the adventures of a group of friends as they try to keep creature teacher's secret.    If you like adventure stories with lots of extra burping and farting in them and you don't like goody two-shoes then you will love this book!  We have already ordered the second book and I can't wait to read it!    P.S. The funniest bit is on page 122

This is a really fun and entertaining book, about jakes teacher mr Hyde who is the best teacher in the whole world. But he has a secret, when he becomes upset he transforms into a small creature. He has some amazing abilities as a creature, but he's not well behaved, and the class have to come up with ways to hide the creature from the head-teacher. Chapters are short, the book is easy to follow, and the characters are engaging. The illustrations were good, I especially loved the illustrations of mr Hyde when he is a creature. I liked that there were random pictures of the creature at the start of every chapter, which I looked forward to seeing what he would be doing on the picture. I really enjoyed the story, and jake and my Hyde were the 2 most likeable characters. This book will appeal to both boys and girls my age and slightly older, and it reminded me of a Roald Dahl book, so anyone that likes those will love this book.

The book was funny.  I liked the teacher because he turned into a creature when he was angry and he did funny things.  The book didn't make me laugh out loud, but I enjoyed it.
