If you open Uncle Gobb and the Dread Shed expecting neat, orderly prose about a universe in which wide-eyed children learn valuable truths from the wise adults around them – well, you’re probably not already familiar with Michael Rosen’s writing. He starts digressing in the second paragraph; discusses pee and poo by page two; devotes pages 50 and 51 to explaining how Jeremiah Worksheet invented worksheets, in 1859… and then gets into the serious mayhem. With a genie that comes out of the protagonist’s nose. A teacher might read this book as a piece of biting satire about what happens when political ideology takes over as the major influence on the development of a state education system; young people, on the other hand, will simply recognise the craziness that they see all around them, and relish the recognition that actually, there is more to smart thinking than responding to questions with the precise words that have been deemed ‘correct’ by a remote authority. Oh, and they will also love Neal Layton’s anarchic illustrations.
