Product description

It’s a new term at Ribblestrop, and the headmaster is hoping for less chaos and more study this time round. But secrets remain hidden below ground, the sinister new Chaplain is not all he seems, and a truckload of circus animals has taken refuge in the school grounds. Among the new intake are a footballing protegee 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 save the day a second time?

Winner of the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize.

“About the joy that can be found in learning, the power that can be found in trust, and the magic found in second chances and forgiveness, all wrapped in what can only be called a rollicking and often wonderfully funny plot.” Jenny Blake, Bookgeeks

“A full-on adventure, with death-defying bravery, rooftop escapades and much subterranean drama… a second great, unusual, lighthearted action romp that satisfies on every level.” Bookbag
