'Picking up where SQUIDGE DIBLEY DESTROYS THE SCHOOL left off, the most hilarious and weirdest Year 6 class on Earth is about to become the most hilarious, weirdest and coolest class in the galaxy - thanks to the out-of-this-world talents of Squidge Dibley. But be warned: this series is too gross for grown-ups!

'After the disastrous events of SQUIDGE DIBLEY DESTROYS THE SCHOOL, things are finally looking up for class 6PU. All the way up into outer space!

'It all begins with half-a-duck and a very naughty python. Throw in an astronaut, a robot, a school hall full of insane inventions and an excursion to space camp, and you've got one crazy, cosmos-sized problem.'

'Squidge Dibley is the strangest kid at a school full of strange kids, in this hilarious series written and illustrated by Mick Elliott. In this Australian Reading Hour exclusive story, Squidge's latest invention blows a hole in the time-space continuum, creating CHAOS, DANGER and SQUIDGINESS.

'Normal kids build dioramas for History assignments. Squidge Dibley builds a time machine. When class 6PU's pet, Bubble O'Gill, accidentally falls into its wormhole and gets lost in time, it's up to the stretchy, bendy kid with ultrasonic burps to rescue him before he dries out and/or destroys life as we know it. Along the way, Squidge encounters some of the weirdest, wildest people and events from history, and leaves each place he visits just a little bit squidgier.'  (Publication summary)

'A kid named Squidge Dibley.

'He's small, quiet and strangely ... squidgy.
