From the prize-winning author of Trash and Dog, Return to Ribblestrop is sure the delight the most mischievous among us.
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 protégée 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?
PRAISE FOR RIBBLESTROP: ‘Masterful knockabout humour....the book bulges with irreverent fun and incident.’ The Irish Times ‘Ribblestrop has the "crazy school" appeal of Hogwarts and the grim humour of Lemony Snicket, and looks like a winner.’ The Independent ‘Ribblestrop is disgracefully dangerous high-octane fun of the highest order: an outrageous delight’ Philip Ardagh, in the Guardian
