Further details

It's the last week of term and most of the school are taking part in a fun activities week... except Hank. Miss Adolf has prepared a week of punctuation catch-up classes and Hank is incredibly bored. But when Mr Rock tricks Miss Adolf into swapping tasks, the catch-up classes become much more fun.
