He's back, and the rules have changed!
Gillian Cross has been writing children's books for over thirty years. Before that, she took English degrees at Oxford and Sussex Universities, and she has had various jobs including working in a village bakery and being an assistant to a Member of Parliament. She is married with four children and lives in Dorset. Her hobbies include orienteering and playing the piano. She won the Carnegie Medal for Wolf and the Smarties Prize and the Whitbread Children's Novel Award for The Great Elephant Chase.
`Gillian Cross is one of the best children's novelists today and her stories of the Demon Headmaster are both fun and quite frightening.' Daily Telegraph `This is something of a reboot for the series, since aside from the title character none of the cast from the past six books returns. Ofsted rating? Outstanding.' The Finanical Times
