Offbeat! by Marlane Ainsworth
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Tommo is neat, quiet, calm and careful, and he plays lead trumpet in the school band. His best friend, Smelly, is a girl who is messy, noisy, rough and impulsive, and she is a star player in the school footy team. When the band and the footy team go to the city to take part in their respective state-wide competitions, their unusual friendship is tested to the limit. Mr Dracovich ("Drac"), the bandmaster, struggles to bring the band to performance level. While Thumper, the footy coach, psyches his team up to fever pitch. After a disastrous mix up with the buses, the band turns up at the footy oval and the footy team finds itself taking the stage holding a variety of musical instruments. Will Tommo end up with mud on his face? Will Smelly overcome stage fright and manage to get a sound out of Tommo s trumpet? Very funny and hugely entertaining Smelly and Me will appeal to boys, girls, sports freaks and the more "arty" types.
