From the prize-winning author of Trash and Dog, Ribblestrop is sure the delight the most mischievous among us.

When your school's motto is `Life is dangerous', you know that anything can happen - and everything does!

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...

`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
