Here on YABuzz we love all kinds of fiction for young people and we’re so excited this popped up on The Bookseller.
35 years since the original publication of The Demon Headmaster the series is coming back with a brand new story around the creepy hypnotic headmaster. The Demon Headmaster: Take Control will be written by Gillian Cross and like the original story follows a girl who is suspicious of other pupils in her school.
Talking to The Bookseller about the new story Cross said “The Demon Headmaster appeared in my imagination, out of nowhere, thirty five years ago and he’s been in my mind ever since. I’ve written this new book because the threat of control never goes away; it just changes to exploit new opportunities. And I suddenly saw what the Demon Headmaster would be doing today.”
The series currently comprises of 6 novels and several short stories and has been made into a highly successful TV series – gosh we’re so nostaligic thinking about the series *wants it to be shown again* run the titles!
OUP is launching a redesign of the covers to tie in with the new story – we can’t wait to see them!
