Ribblestrop (Trade Paperback / Paperback, Reprint ed.)

By Mulligan, Andy

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 Pr...ize. 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.
