A spooky school-set mystery from Michaela Morgan. Perfect for fans of Anne Fine and Pamela Butchart. There's a thing in the basement of Scott's new school and it's a thing only Mr Crawley can control. There's a thing in the basement of Scott's new school and it flashes and ROARS! There's a thing in the basement of Scott's new school and surely it can't be a dragon... or can it? This mysterious adventure from Michaela Morgan has quirky black-and-white illustrations by Doffy Weir and is perfect for children who are developing as readers.

Author Biography

Michaela Morgan is a long-established children's author with a string of award-winning books to her name, including titles which have won a UKRA (now UKLA) award and have been an International Reading Association Choice and a World Book Day Recommended Read. Michaela has taught a wide age range, from bright-eyed infants to jaded fraudsters and worked in various prisons as Writer in Residence. She is also a National Poetry Day Ambassador and is regularly involved in school and festival events. Doffy Weir always wanted to illustrate children's books and managed to get started when an editor saw some of her drawings and asked her to illustrate a poetry book. She has been drawing ever since. Doffy has two grown-up children and lives in London, which she loves because it is full of different people from all over the world.
