Ten prize-winning authors each with a brand new story based on their own school days.
Bernard Ashley, Malorie Blackman, Berlie Doherty, Paul Jennings, Margaret Mahy, Michael Morpurgo, Jenny Nimmo, Michael Rosen, Jeremy Strong and Robert Swindells. Brand new stories based on each author's own school days but not excluding a little fantasy! Written in each author's unique style and based on something that is common to every child in the country - school.
Stories of running away from school; getting the strap for punishments; vindictive teachers; boys who tell porky-pies; the shy girl who could only talk through her puppet; getting expelled; being an evacuee; as well as meeting one's own true love at school! Stories that contemporary schoolchildren will relate to in sharing the triumphs and disasters of their favourite authors' school days.
