School Trip Squirmies
illustrated by Graham Ross
Max is on a school trip to an art gallery when he gets a case of the Super Fidgets. Unfortunately, he's stuck with the school bully for a partner, but Max's creativity saves the day.
Meet Maximus Todd! He's the kid who can't sit still. Max gets a case of the Super Fidgets on a school trip to the art gallery. He decides to focus on the colour green to distract himself. It's not easy but he's determined to win the challenge he has set.
Max finds that while it's not always easy being a kid — especially if you're a bit different — inspiration sometimes strikes at the most unexpected times.
