Robyn is sure she is in big trouble with the school librarian. She published a school newspaper with a spelling mistake in the headline "Mr Lee Smells Foul."
In class they talk about democracy and freedom of the press, but now the principal is telling her she's not allowed to publish the newspaper without teachers' supervision. Robyn's ready to challenge the school, but she's not sure it'll make any difference. At last, help comes from an unexpected direction.
Robyn Makes the News is a funny and thoughtful book about learning what can be changed, and what can't be.
