Product description

First in the bloody and brilliant Tales from Schwartzgarten series – a must for fans of Roald Dahl and Lemony Snicket! Meet Osbert Brinkhoff, the unlikeliest of avengers. His is a tale of dark delights and ghastly goings-on, of injustice and revenge. The villains are vicious. The settings are sinister. And good does NOT always prevail…

Eleven-year-old Osbert seems to be in luck when he wins a scholarship to The Institute, a school for gifted children. But he soon discovers that its a sinister place whose wicked teachers are intent on evil. Terrorised and humiliated, Osbert vows to take a bloody revenge with the help of the beautiful genius Isabella. But can the Schwartzgarten Slayer bring down the evil Institute – and escape the long arm of the law? If you prefer cleavers to kittens and fiends to fairies, the grisly world of Schwartzgarten is the place for you!

“Gruesomely funny. This brilliantly woven mock-gothic tale has huge child appeal.” Westbooks

“Macabre and gruesome and wickedly funny.” Julia Eccleshare,

“Rules are broken in a carnival manner that is deliciously and genuinely thrilling” Books for Keeps
