The Blurb

Being BAD has never felt so GOOD!

Welcome to Villains Academy – the most prestigious villain school in the ENTIRE land. You will either leave here as a fully-formed villain . . . or in tatters.

It’s werewolf Bram’s first day at Villains Academy. He really doesn’t feel like a villain at all, but the coveted Villain of the Week trophy is up for grabs, and Bram knows he’ll have to dig deep. With the help of new friends Mona the elf-witch, Bryan the lion, Shelia the ghost and Tony the skeleton, can Bram find his inner badness and become the villain he’s always dreamed of being?

The Review

Get practicing your super villain cackle, because this book will have you laughing out loud as Bram Moon settles into life at Villains Academy. Determined to do his parents proud, Bram is mortified when he fails to be set extra homework and is excluded from Master Mardybum’s detention! Being bad is definitely harder work that he ever imagined it would be.

Packed full of brilliant characters who all bring their unique skills to their team, and with an abundance of wonderfully witty illustrations, there is much to love in this story that has much more to offer than its humourous tale alone. Full of heart and undercover kindness, this is a story of teamwork, courage and accepting help when needed that we could all learn from. And, this is a story about being true to yourself, despite other’s expectations of you.

Great for fans of:
