Guardian Children's Fiction Prize

Hot on the heels of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize comes the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize, which yesterday went to Andy Mulligan for Return to Ribblestrop. According to this Guardian article, it's "a teacher's vision of life at the most inappropriate boarding school he could imagine – think tots of rum to keep the pupils warm, regular circus training and panthers giving birth." Another article explains why Mulligan thinks boarding schools are the perfect setting for a yarn.

We have all three of the Andy Mulligan books below in the library - they sound like rollicking reads.
