If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.

Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.

Leigh Hobbs turns his sharply observant eyes to the oddballs and misfits in Grade 4 in this absolutely hilarious illustrated story for 7-11 year olds...'a world of barely contained anarchy, borderline menace and irresistible humour It's reassuring to think that the truly anarchic tradition in children's literature is still being honoured' Brisbane's Child, Sydney's Child..'a perfect read for reluctant readers with a zany sense of humour' Sunday Star Times..'one of the most profound, moving and monumental children's books that has ever been written. This never-before-told story of grade 4F will change your life A classroom of freaks is an inspired idea allows his anarchic and outrageous funny drawings to carry the day.'

Courier Mail..'
4F for freaks Hobbs's skill as artist and author is evident here. He has created a cast of unpleasant characters who appeal even as they repel. He uses alliteration and rhyme to powerful effect. The conclusion is superb, with a twist that leaves the reader pondering who has really won.' Sunday Morning Herald..'unputdownable' Single Parent Bible..'packed full of the author's distinctive, bizarre, cartoon characters Young fans of Leigh Hobbs will readily take to the terrible 4F and their mischievous pranks, however, I suspect quite a few older readers will have a chuckle or two as well.'
