Format: Paperback
Originally read this book when I was about 10-12 and loved it, recently found it again and found its still as funny as it was
then. The way it is written is fantastic and the madness of the characters especially in the first chapter had me laughing out loud. Although the book does get darker as it goes along, it is an amusing and exciting story that is a must for everyone.

This book is an amazing, fast paced read that I couldn't put down. I looked forward to reading it all day and even took it in the bath with me. I think you should read this now!

Format: Paperback
It is the first book I read of Anthony Horowitz, and it will not be the last. This book goes back to 1983 and yet all the ingredients having made the success of Harry Potter are already in this novel! There are mystery, suspense, bounces, sympathetic characters, all played on nerves, in an opaque and oppressive atmosphere. I was not totally captured at the beginning, but then I couldn't help to raise my nose from this book!

An amazing book. It is about a boy who gets expelled from a school. Unfortunatly, his parents are not to happy about it. They both beleive in discipline for children, such as wacking them with a stick, or making them drink a gallon of petrol. Basically, they love torchure. Anyway, when David goes off to this weird school, named Groosham Grange. He realises that it is not his kind of school. He confonts human werewolfs, vampire teachers , and a two headed headmaster! David worked out that if you stay too long, you will be turned into a zombie, who sleeps whenever they have spare time. David and his best friend Jill try their best to escape from it, but is it possible?

This book was given to me at Christmas in 95/6, and I couldnt wait to read it cover to cover! By new year, it was completely finished. It was a really exciting book, and amusingly scary. David Eliot's parents are very eccentric and a very odd couple, and David is the only sane one in the house! We hear about the new friends he makes, and the strange customs at the new school - signing the school contract in blood, and never seeing the headmaster (see the front cover - that's why!) Truly excellent and thoroughly recommended.

Format: Paperback
This book is a must read! It's funny and scary but also brilliant. Once you start reading it you will never stop!
I loved this book when I first read it and immediately read the next one. Its supernatural but so are the parent. But it almost makes the story better. I recommended Anthony Horowitz to my brother and he has almost read all his books and is waiting for the new Alex Rider! This story gives you the shivers but also keeps you laughing for hours so don't get put off by the front cover.
This book is mainly about a boy called David Elliot who gets expelled form his old school Beton collage. His new school is just weird! It's situated on an island that isn't on the map. With his best friends Jill and Jeffery they try to figure out the mysteries of Groosham Grange but they do not know what they are getting into. All the teachers are weird and so are the boys. But Jeffery suddenly changes he now is wearing a black ring. Then David escapes he steels Captain Bloodbaths boat and heads for Norfolk. But in the library he finds a book on Groosham Grange and finds out all its secrets.
I would highly recommend this book to 8-12 year olds it had me laughing for ages but maybe not for those who are lovers of Animal Hospitals you might not find it very interesting. It's a really good book and I hope lots of people enjoyed it just as much as me!

Format: Paperback
I use Anthony Horowitz books, including this one, for reluctant readers. The stories are so exciting that they want to find out what happens, even though the words may prove a real challenge to them.
A word of warning, though: this is more Roald Dahl than JK Rowling. Although most children love it, the sensitive ones may find it rather frightening.

By Mr. D. L. Rees TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 8 Feb. 2011
Format: Paperback
Expelled from one boarding school, twelve year old David Eliot is promptly despatched to another - his parents not fussy, as long as he is out of the way. From the start he realizes this new one is odd - he met at the station by a converted hearse, its driver once turned down by a freak show as over qualified....

Horrors abound in the country's sole private school to have its own cemetery. The staff are a very weird bunch indeed - planning "to do things" with David before he is thirteen. Can he escape? Will he even want to?

One senses in Anthony Horowitz a boyish humour, jokes and anarchic situations mischievously concocted to guarantee chuckles of delight. Result? An engagingly ghoulish read. Good news for all who enjoyed it: there is a sequel!
