Synopsis

It’s the beginning of term for Elizabella and her gang, but instead of being a fresh start, it’s a rotten one. The school is falling apart and misery sets in when a big corporation takes over the tuckshop, leaving poor Miss Duck out of a job. Meanwhile, there’s a lice outbreak at Bilby Creek Primary and a competition to write the School Song. How will Elizabella deal with all of this? In true Elizabella style, of course!
