More About the Author

Anne Fine leads a double life as an author. Of her eight novels for adult readers, she describes seven as black comedies and the first, The Killjoy, as simply 'dead black'. These adult novels cause readers to squirm with mingled horror and delight as she peels away the layers in all too familiar family relationships, exposing the tangled threads and conflicts beneath. It's therefore perhaps not surprising that Anne has openly expressed astonishment at the fact that murder in the domestic setting is not more common.
A great favourite for discussions in reading groups, Anne Fine's work has been published in over forty-five languages. Despite this, she remains best known in her home country, Britain, as a writer principally for children. She has twice won both the Carnegie Medal and the Whitbread Awards, the Guardian Children's Book Prize and numerous other prizes and awards. She was the second Children's Laureate from 2001-3, is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, and was awarded an OBE for services to children's literature.
Anne Fine is an entertaining and engaging speaker on the subject of books and reading, and is in demand the world over for her tireless enthusiasm, common sense approach to literacy, and for the deliciously wicked humour that permeates all her writing.

Format: Hardcover
Tasked with looking after the new boy, Ivan who cannot speak English, Boris quickly finds himself embroiled within a moral dilemma as the comments Ivan directs towards his class-mates become ever-more inflammatory!

Comedy, chaos, communication barriers and classroom capers quickly ensue in perfect combination leading to a wholly cohesive and utterly satisfying read. Anne Fine has made dark humour her trademark and characteristically it is lavished throughout this novel in ways that are guaranteed to get guffaws and giggles from even the most staid reader. A worthy winner of the silver 2007 Nestle award, this short, highly engaging read is one that is not to be missed.

Format: Hardcover
I found this book for my niece. Before wrapping it up as a post-xmas present, I found myself reading it from cover to cover, unable to put it down. My niece will love it - it's got spot-on humor for the 8-12 set and is clever and educational to boot. Another winner from the inimitable Anne Fine. (For a first-rate adult read, read Fine's The Killjoy - another prizewinner but for the grownups).

Very funny and entertaining. This is my eight year old's favorite book right now - he's now asking if he can take Russian lessons with the hope that a Russian student will magically arrive in HIS classroom.

I must admit I read it too after my son had gone to bed (I love Anne Fine's adult books), and really enjoyed it ...

A very funny and witty book. Gifted on Christmas day, finished by Boxing Day. This book is not just fun for the kids, it is also a really clever and amusing read for any adult curious to know what their nine year old is so engrossed in!
