Julia Eccleshare's comment:
Welcome to the school where scoundrels save the day. This is Robin Hood meets Oliver Twist in a laugh-out-loud new series from one of the most-loved children's authors, Terry Deary. With a cast of hilarious characters, witty asides and farcical action, no reader can fail to be inspired by the goings-on at this most unusual of schools!Who is Julia Eccleshare ?

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
