Our brand new series Stuff Happens has been a huge hit with parents and teachers who are looking for contemporary reads that have the added bonus of subtly teaching emotional literacy and empathy. With four titles in the series so far and four more to come in the year ahead, we wanted to start sharing some reader feedback with all of you. Below are two reviews from readers for you to enjoy.
Teachers, we have special limited editions of Stuff Happens – Jack, in a Penguin Teachers’ Academy edition, with handy teaching notes in the back. If you would like us to send you one of these editions free of charge, leave a comment on the blog.
I liked Jack because I loved the big game Jack played ‘You Pay You Play’. I would play that game. Oh and then he got in big trouble by the principal. In the end Jack told the truth about the game and Jack and his friend still got to play with the Vipers.. I learned it is best to tell the truth and things might work out.

I liked Sean it was interesting to me how he made friends at a new school but then that friend used him and how that made him feel. He was then able to make new friends quickly as well as keeping in contact with his old friends from the other side of Australia. It made me think that you just shouldn’t always just try and hang out with the cool kids. RUPERT aged 10
