Summary On Dress-Up-As-What-You-Want-To-Be-When-You-Grow-Up-Day, Battie dresses up as Stretcho, his very own made up super hero.Little Lunch is a mockumentary comedy series that takes place during fifteen highly significant minutes of a child's life; that of snack time in the primary school playground. Adapted from the popular books written by Danny Katz and illustrated by Mitch Vane, Little Lunch is a vibrant and truthful character comedy for the small screen. Each self-contained episode revolves around, and is told by, six diverse and distinctly identifiable children. Atticus is the sweet, nerdy one that is always hungry. Melanie is stubborn, but shy. Tamara Noodle is not shy and excellent at sport. Rory is the naughty one. Battie is the daydreamer and Debra-Jo is the smart and organised one. Occasionally the children are joined by Mrs Gonsha, their much-loved teacher, with an enormously generous spirit and a tendency to nod off in class... Little Lunch tackles the big issues in the playground. Who gets to go on the monkey bars? Who gets to join whose club? Who gets Mrs Gonsha off the top of the slide pole when she gets stuck? Little Lunch tells stories that may seem small to adults, but loom large for kids. It uses observational humour to explore themes, which govern children: fear, anxiety, friendship, loyalty, trust and abandonment. (Actually those themes govern adults too, which explains why parents will also love this series.) Little Lunch is an eminently relatable comedy with heart.
