Best Friends Forever - Bigg School Teaching Resources

Welcome to BIGG SCHOOL!

Lola and Evie have been BFF since they were babies. When Lola discovers that they’re in different classes at their new school, it’s a total disaster! Lola is forced to sit next to Daniel, the most annoying boy on the planet. Worse still, Evie makes a brand new friend – snooty show-off, Cleo – who wants Evie all to herself.

Three most definitely IS a crowd, but Lola is not going to lose her BFF without putting up a fight!

With illustrations that express the often hilarious inner lives of the characters, the Bigg School series tells stories of the extraordinary lives of ordinary kids navigating friendships, change and all the ups and downs of growing up.
