If you’ve got that back to school feeling and the school holidays feel like a distant memory, then you need something to snap you out of our your doldrums, something that will thoroughly entertain you. Luckily for you I have the perfect choice, the latest book in the Gangster School series has just been released ‘Gruffles and the Killer Sheep.’ If you think your school problems are bad, wait to see what Milly and Charlie have to face when they are sent to represent their school at Crimicon, the place to be seen for promising young criminals. Not only is it being held at their arch enemies school, Crumleys but Charlie’s dog Gruffles has secretly tagged along promising to cause chaos and carnage. With traps and problems awaiting them at every turn can they find a way to save their school’s reputation and save poor Gruffles from the clutches of the Killer Sheep?
If you’re new to this series you may not realise that there are in fact top-secret schools for criminals right under our very noses in the most unexpected of places. This funny and original concept still amuses me, what other school would bad behaviour go unpunished and instead be encouraged and greatly rewarded. You know from the moment team Blaggards step foot into the grounds of Crumley’s and are nearly thrown into the moat that this isn’t going to be an easy ride. Following on from the first two books in the series you know that you must at all times expect the unexpected, prepare to be bamboozled by the many twists and turns the plot takes as it shakes you up and down like a possessed mini-bus. There are so many questions that are unanswered and so many weird things happening that Milly and Charlie must uncover. Slick, fast-paced and filled with mayhem and mirth, this continues to be a really compelling series which children are bound to find entertaining.
