When he was small and his parents told him if he was good he would get a sweet, the boy knew it was not true. Getting the sweet had nothing to do with being good.

'Badger Do Best' has landed, bringing with it a new world of rules and regulations. But the kids are fighting back. Tired of being guinea pigs in yet another government scheme, can the class of 4N bring down the education regime set to pacify them?

After years working in the classroom, Molly Davies imagines a mutiny of eight year olds.
