Mr Crikey and the Greedy Griffith

Mr Crikey and the Greedy Griffith by Matt Porter

When wildlife warrior Mr Crikey bursts into the classroom of Grade 6B wrestling a python, the students think the saviour of the local Swimming Hole has arrived. Mr Crikey sets about helping the students raise money to purchase the Swimming Hole, and the surrounding bushland, and save it from the hands of developers. However, their plans are thrown into disarray when suave businessman Benjamin Griffith rents out the class storeroom and subsequently purchases shares in the students. Griffith forces the students to work for him and turns the classroom into a money earning regime with initiatives such as 'walk-thru learning'. Will the students of Grade 6B be able to regain power of their classroom and save the Swimming Hole?
