    Hi
    So recently I remembered this book I read in primary school. It was a compilation of some very weird and unique short stories and I absolutely adored it at time but cannot remember the name of it. Here are some of the stories I faintly remember:
    1. One was to do with a couple of friends that were playing around with their chicken who could count and one of the boys got hypnotised to become the chicken and went to school the next day like that and didn't do his maths homework and the teacher was rlly strict but freaked out cuz the kid was acting like a damn chicken

    2. This teacher had rlly bad headaches so got some medicine but it just made all her wishes come true like even the ones she said by accident and it caused a lot of trouble for her

    3. These two best friends decided to put glue on this kids chair and it ripped his trousers or something idek

    4. The school had a new chef and everyone loved his food but turns out he was using random things around school as his ingredients like pencil shavings and paint and stuff

    That's all I remember. I know it sounds like really weird but it was such a great book and I really really want to find it again. If anyone has read this book or can kinda remember the details let me know!

    The book is called Unbearable by Paul Jennings (1990) and the short story of the chicken is called Next Time Around. Your most welcome.
