The Lovereading4Kids comment

Dinah and her friends try to get to the bottom of the new trend sweeping the school. Everyone seems to have gone crazy for Hunky Parker but why? Can SPLAT break the trend and keep the school safe?

Synopsis

Revenge of the Demon Headmaster - 3 by Gillian Cross

Hunky Parker is the new craze. His drooling, dribbling pig face is everywhere: on T-shirts and badges, and there are even horrible pig-trotter trainers and pig-swill yogurts in the shops. But it's when the Hunky TV shows air nationally that the trouble really begins. Suddenly, people are going crazy for Hunky goods ...and when the shops have sold out, dangerous rioting starts. Dinah and her friends are suspicious. Is it really just a trend, or is something more sinister afoot? Watching a Hunky video provides a valuable clue. Dinah and the rest of SPLAT set off in search of the real Hunky Parker. But someone is blocking them at every turn-someone who wants to keep the identity of Hunky Parker a secret ...Someone who plans to control the entire nation! 'Gillian Cross's novels should be prescribed for all cases of reading reluctance among eight- to ten-year-olds. The Revenge of the Demon Headmaster has the same sort of appeal as 'Famous Five' or 'Secret Seven' novels.' Sunday Telegraph

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
