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! This is the second in the Master Crook series.
