On the first day at her new school, Dinah realizes something is horribly wrong. The children are strangely neat and well-behaved; they even work during playtime. What makes them behave this way? The answer is fear, but what is the secret of the Headmaster's control? Recently voted one of the top 20 books of the last 20 years, this is the first title in the best-selling series which inspired the top-rating TV series.

Gillian Cross was born on the edge of London and, for as long as she can remember, has loved books and stories. She was still at school when she started to write books though, she admits, she never had any time to finish any of them off. She has now published many children's books with OUP, and won many prizes, including The Smarties Book Prize and The Whitbread Children's Book Award. She has been translated into twelve languages worldwide, and has established herself as a master of the novel for older children/young adults. The Demon Headmaster books have now been adapted for BBC Children's TV. Gillian lives in Coventry.Review:
An excellent, breezy, entertaining play with lots of potential for theatrical business and opportunities for the involvement of all of your pupils/drama group. I would gladly do it again. * 5 Start Amazon Review *
