Description of this Book

When your school's motto is Life is dangerous, you know that anything can happen--and everything does! This raucous tale of education gone awry is rife with disgracefully dangerous high-octane fun, according to the The Guardian, which awarded Ribblestrop the Children's Fiction Prize. There's no school that's quite like Ribblestrop, complete with roofless dormitories, distracted teachers, and a perilous underground labyrinth. And then there are the students! You'll meet Sanchez, a Colombian gangster's son hiding from kidnappers; Millie, an excluded arsonist and self-confessed wild child; Caspar, the landlady's spoiled grandson; the helpful but hapless Sam and his best friend Ruskin, plus a handful of orphans from overseas who are just happy to have beds--even if they are located in a roofless part of the building. With the crazy-school appeal of Hogwarts and the grim humor of Lemony Snicket ( The Independent ), Ribblestrop is sure to delight the most mischievous among us.

Author's Bio

Andy Mulligan was brought up in South London and educated at Oxford University. He worked as a theater director for ten years before travels in Asia prompted him to retrain as a teacher. He has taught English and drama in India, Brazil, the Philippines, and the UK, where he has proved inspirational to many students. He now divides his time between London and Manila. Tad Carpenter is a designer, author, teacher, and illustrator of many books for young readers. The New York Times Book Review raved of his Zoom! Zoom!, Any child obsessed with trucks or backhoes or trains or steam shovels should get a jolt of pleasure from the vehicular energy on display here. He lives in Kansas City, Missouri.
