Description - The Whole Business with Kiffo and the Pitbull by Barry Jonsberg

SHORT-LISTED: CBCA Book of the Year, Older Readers, 2005 I don't know you at all. I wouldn't recognise you from a hole in the ground. If I was telling this story to some friends, then they would already know Kiffo and they would know me and they would know the school and everything. I'd just be able to get straight into what happened when a new English teacher, the Pitbull, slobbered and snarled her way into our class. But you don't know anything. No offence. 'An inspiring debut novel: simultaneously funny and wise. A +' - Tony Wilson, Triple R Breakfasters
