Review

[Of The Revenge of the Demon Headmaster]: 'Well-crafted, interesting and tense. (Amazon review)

Gillian Cross is one of the best children's novelists today and her stories of the Demon Headmaster are both fun and quite frightening. In The Revenge of the Demon Headmaster she takes the general message of George Orwell's Animal Farm and reworks it for younger readers . . . gripping stuff (Daily Telegraph)

Gillian Cross's many Demon Headmaster fans will love this book with its new slant on subliminal power . . . This fast-moving story has lots of tension and excitement, as well as a chilling cautionary theme . . . Great stuff! (School Librarian)

an imaginative story involving adventure and fun (Sunday Independent - West Country)

[Of The Demon Headmaster]: 'a rattling good yarn (TLS)

a light-hearted, funny and ingenious story (School Librarian)

an excellent mystery with an unusual setting (Good Book Guide - Children's)

I would recommend it to anyone who likes weird but funny books (Teen Titles)

an attractive, easy-flowing style with interesting characters and a lively story (Junior Education)

Format: Paperback
This is the third book in the 'Demon Headmaster' series of six. The book was first published in 1994, 12 years after the first book. The first book (The demon headmaster) is essential pre-reading and it makes far more sense if the books are read in order.

Adopted Dinah has now settled in and the incumbent boys (particularly younger brother Harvey) now treat her as an equal. The SPLAT team are still knocking about together, and Ingrid comes back from holiday talking of a fantastic new craze that is sweeping Wales - everyone there is completely infatuated with a great new TV show and its commercial spin-offs. Fortunately Ingrid has bought back the video of the program, so she insists that the SPLAT team sit down to watch it............

This book reads a bit less like an Enid Blyton's secret seven novel than the first two books, although the storyline is actually more dated than the previous books entrancing computer game storyline in `The Prime Ministers Brain'. This is simply because it mentions VHS videos and the obvious lack of mobile phones. In a way it's a shame the odd few sentences weren't updated as otherwise the story is still quite futuristic.

Like the other two books, my son (10) is really enjoying me reading this book to him at bedtime (at 190 pages it took a while). My son, a poor reader, happily reads a few pages as well. Again this book has no illustrations, despite being aimed at preteens, but the well crafted story reads well enough without them. Plus the vocabulary used is quite varied and challenging, which is useful for children reading.

This is a very interesting book,I strongly recommend this book to any young reader.Gillian Cross is a genius with these fantastic books.The books are short but highly entertaining, making you want to buy the whole series just to find out everything which happened to Lloyd, Harvey and Dinah.I'm sure most of the readers who read this bewildering book will want Gillian to expand the series.Gillian is like Roald Dahl, David Walliams and Michael Murpago put together for children to enjoy.This is a wonderful book!

This is a superb book. You start with this really ugly pig, everyone changes their mind about him, Dinah is the only sensible one, they meet the Demon Headmaster, foil his plans again, he tries to kill them, fails, the Demon Headmaster gets away, don't know where he went. I recommend that you read this book. I also recommend that you eat raspberry sorbet instead of chocolate chip ice cream, but that has nothing to do with this.
