At a train station on her way to meet her friends Marie and Leo to recover her pet rock, Madame Charlotte accidentally picks up the Prime Minister's elephant-hide bag instead of her own. As it contains important documents and the politician is due to make an important speech on children's education, Miss Charlotte - hoping that she might get a ministerial job out of this - embarks on a quest to track him down. Along the way, Miss Charlotte cannot help making speeches on behalf of the country's leader and putting her own original twist on his boring children's policy, while attracting at the same time the attentions of the media and the secret service.Also in the series: The New Teacher, The Mysterious Librarian, The New Football Coach.

Miss Charlotte is an old lady who doesn’t do anything like other people. In The New Teacher she gets her pupils to use spaghetti as a ruler, in The Mysterious Librarian she arranges books by colour, and in The New Football Coach she teaches young footballers how to lose.
There are many people who think that Miss Charlotte must be totally bonkers because she talks aloud to Gertrude, her rock. But children in loads of schools, towns and countries who have got to know Miss Charlotte now chat to their toothbrushes or tell their secrets to a pebble.

A Funny Sort of Minister

Chapter 1
Time to Be Reunited with Gertrude
With a pounding heart, Miss Charlotte studied the train timetable in the central station. “In two hours and fifty-four minutes. At last!” she sighed, putting down her elephant-skin travel bag.
In two hours and fifty-four minutes she would be boarding a train that would take her to Saint-Anatole. And in Saint-Anatole she would be reunited with Leo, Marie… and Gertrude!
