The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for Roald Dahl's Funny Prize 2009.

In this quirky and original debut there’s never a dull moment. Even before the student’s turn up to the school, you can tell is no ordinary place. The building is semi-ruined (some dormitories don’t even have a roof ), the staff are unconventional if imaginative and the students, even before they turn up, are shown to be a rather usual bunch including, as they do, Sanchez, who spends much of his life trying to avoid being kidnapped. Not surprisingly, there are some pretty hair-raising adventures as a result and the setting provides an unusual vision of school.

Synopsis

Ribblestrop by Andy Mulligan

A dilapidated school with the most unpromising of pupils and eccentric of teachers, led by an educational maverick, must unravel the mystery of what is going on in its secret cellars if it is to avoid complete ruin.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
