A new school year means new trouble in this rollicking sequel to Ribblestrop, which has the “crazy-school appeal of Hogwarts and the grim humor of Lemony Snicket” (The Independent).
The headmaster at Ribblestrop is hoping for a bit more organization as a new term gets underway. But secrets remain buried, the new Chaplain is not all that he seems, and a truckload of circus animals has taken refuge in the school grounds. There’s also a new student who’s a soccer protégé, not to mention a pregnant panther and an escaped crocodile. Basically, things are about to go from bad to worse at Ribblestrop. Can Millie, Sanchez, and the gang help save the day once more?
