Review by Stacey

The Teacher Who Knew Too Much is an exciting, adventurous, and amusing middle-grade story by children’s author Rob Keeley.

I’m pretty sure many children have wondered what their teachers get up to outside of school hours but for student Ben, he never imagined he’d discover his maths teacher was a serial bank robber.

Unfortunately, Ben finds himself in danger when he overhears a conversation between his teacher, Miss Judson, and the second robber her ruthless boyfriend Al.

The book is good fun and the story flows well. There are plenty of humorous moments, especially from Ben’s Nana and her elephant gun. It was quick to read and the tension and excitement kept me engaged and turning the pages, rapidly. I can see children flying through this book in just one sitting wanting to know what happens to Ben and his teacher.

Overall, The Teacher Who Knew Too Much is a tremendous read. The short chapters keep it snappy, the characters are daring, and the plot is entertaining from beginning to end.

I’ve been writing stories and plays since I was a kid and I used to lie on the hearthrug and write with a smudgy pen and do all the pictures myself in felt tip, before stapling all the pages together (but hopefully not to the rug). Fortunately, Troubador Publishing knows much better ways of putting a book together and in March 2011 they published my first book, which is The Alien in the Garage and Other Stories, a book of short stories for children.

I have now published twelve books for children and they have been honoured with a win at the Georgina Hawtrey-Woore Awards and have been longlisted for the inaugural Bath Children’s Novel Award and the International Rubery Book Award, Highly Commended for the Independent Author Book Award and nominated for the People’s Book Prize. My first novel for adults, a murder mystery called Death At Friar’s Inn, was published in 2022.
