The Lovereading4Kids comment

Winner of the Guardian Children's Book Prize 2011.

The judging panel was chaired by Lovereading4kids Editor in Chief Julia Eccleshare who is also the Guardian Children's Books editor. She said of the winner:

“With its huge cast of unusual and big-hearted characters, combined with the strong streak of total anarchy that runs through it, Return to Ribblestrop epitomises the unlimited scope that the best books possess to entertain a new generation of readers.”

--------------

The school where hilarious things happen, is back with a new set of adventures for a new term. The appearance of a truck load of circus animals in the grounds is unusual enough but things get even more unruly when the students appear. As unpredictable and anarchic as ever, Ribblestrop is a great place to revisit.

Sequel to Ribblestrop.

Synopsis

Return to Ribblestrop by Andy Mulligan

It's a new term at Ribblestrop and the headmaster is hoping for a bit more organisation. But secrets remain under the ground, the new Chaplain is not all that he seems, and a truck load of circus animals has taken refuge in the school grounds. Amongst the new intake are a footballing protegee and a trainee psychopath...not to mention a pregnant panther and an escaped crocodile. Things are about to go from bad to worse at Ribblestrop...can Millie, Sanchez and the gang help save the day once more?

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

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

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

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.

Angela East

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
