Synopsis

Constance and the Great Escape by Pierre Le Gall

Constance is a naughty child who has been sent to boarding school without her beloved cat, but she has a plan to escape! In this title, wonderful illustrations, in a similar style to the recent Tim Burton film, Coraline , reveal mischievous truths. Children will love this fun, mischief-filled tale! It is aimed at children age 7 and upwards. In Constance and Tiny (9781402766480) the irrepressible scamp, Constance, ran away only to get dragged back home. Now her scheming parents are sending her off to a terrible, horrible place: a boarding school for wayward children! There, the rules are strict, the bathwater's cold and the food's horrid. Worst of all, her beloved cat Tiny can't come along. It's just like prison! But canny Constance has a plan: since only bad boys and girls can stay there, maybe if she pretends to be really good they'll set her free. This is a hilariously fun book in which the text portrays Constance as a good little girl, but the illustrations reveal the mischievous truth.
