Maths test? Nightmare! Arun is determined to get out of a Maths test at school. But how? A school-wide protest against all tests?

Pretending to be sick? He’s ready to try anything, but maybe he’s not the only one who feels this way, and maybe in the end it’s better to face your fears?

Book Review

I liked how this is a chapter book but it still had cartoons

If you don’t like tests you might like Test Trouble. It is about a boy called Arun who really hates tests. When his teacher says there will be a maths test he decides to make a protest so he takes a megaphone and a poster saying NO TESTS to school, which was quite funny.

I also liked how this is a chapter book but it still had cartoons.
