    by Bernard Beckett

    illustrations by Kat Chadwick

    “Nobody Laughed” is the humorous story of what happens when a class arrives back at school after the summer holidays and each child has the same bright-green bag. The bags get muddled and the only way to find out who owns which bag is to open them. The main character is really worried about how the others will react when they see the “secret favourite thing” in his bag. It soon becomes clear that everyone has their own secret item.
