A refreshing take on a familiar tale,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: DFC Library: Mo-bot High (Hardcover)Neill Cameron takes the familiar 'starting a new school' plot and gives it a bang up-to-date and refreshingly original twist. There are echoes of the sinister goings-on vibe of 'The Demon Headmaster' mashed up with great dollops of Transformers and Japanese-style trading card games.
What makes it stand out though are not only the quality of the drawings - and they are very good - but the realistic characters and sly sense of humour. I particularly liked the fact that most of the characters are female, giving this book a universal appeal.
Looking on his website, it seems that Neill does a fair bit of work in schools, and it shows in his writing. I loved the concept of the dinner ladies secretly running the whole school - something I have long suspected...
