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!

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!

Quite a gruesome read but my son aged 11 and I read it simultaneously on our kindles. Enjoyed comparing notes! Quite grim in places but yr6 plus should be able to read and enjoy. We loved the humour in it too, some very funny bits!

BRILLIANT. Anthony Horowitz is, in my opinion the best children's author ever. He is a genius. His books capture you right from the start with great plot, great pace and great humour andlkeep you hooked to the very end.

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.

I first read this book in 3rd year of high school when I was about 14 or 15. I'm now 20 and I still love this book! Hilarious and written by what I consider one of the best writers. If you love Anthony Horowitz, you'll love Darren Shan. I know I do.

By A Customer on 16 Jan. 2003
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.
