The Demon Headmaster by Gillian Cross

The Headmaster, more frightening that an Ofsted inspection, is back this summer in a brand new adventure and re-release of the originals.

It’s hard to believe the series is now over thirty years old and has definitely been used as a toolkit for some sociopathic headteachers climbing over other members of senior leadership teams to the top.

Total Control, is a new addition to the series, following plucky heroine Lizzie going up against the hypnotic head.
