9780140316438: The Demon Headmaster (Puffin Books)

The pupils of St Campion's Comprehensive, ultra-disciplined exam machines, are devoted to their headmaster. But something strange is going on and the worst class in the world - 6Z - are going to get to the bottom of this mystery and expose the DEMON HEADMASTER! Based on the very popular children's book, The Demon Headmaster by Gillian Cross, this musical is fun, exciting and a little bit scary. An early version of the musical was 'workshopped' at the Royal National Theatre's studio in 1997 and premiered at The Pleasance Theatre, London. In 1999 it enjoyed a very successful national tour.

About the Author:

Gillian Cross was born on the edge of London and, for as long as she can remember, has loved books and stories. She was still at school when she started to write books though, she admits, she never had any time to finish any of them off. She has now published many children's books with OUP, and won many prizes, including The Smarties Book Prize and The Whitbread Children's Book Award. She has been translated into twelve languages worldwide, and has established herself as a master of the novel for older children/young adults. The Demon Headmaster books have now been adapted for BBC Children's TV. Gillian lives in Coventry.

Review:
