A hilarious tween adventure set in a dazzling fantasy world with two extraordinary heroines - a modern day fairytale with bite.

Every four years, two girls are kidnapped from the village of Gavaldon. Legend has it these lost children are sent to the School for Good and Evil, the fabled institution where they become fairytale heroes or villains.

Sophie, the most beautiful girl in town, has always dreamed of her place at the School for Good while her friend Agatha, with her dark disposition seems destined for the School for Evil. But when the two are kidnapped they find their fortunes reversed...

Review by Isabel Blackmore (age 12): The school for good and evil. Sounds simple, right? It’s not. Its amazing adventures, twists and complications leave you in a daze once you’re finished. Sophie and Agatha are best friends, but there’s one problem – a witch and a princess can’t be friends. With action, adventure, and just a pinch of romance, what’s not to love?

About the Author

Soman has written numerous screenplays and his recent work includes the upcoming feature musical Mumbo Jumbo for Aardman Animation (Wallace & Gromit, Flushed Away, Chicken Run), and the adaptation of children's book The Pushcart War for Jane Startz Productions.

Comments about The School for Good and Evil:

How do I start. This book had me reading about 50 pages a day, and I can only put it down when there's food. I wouldn't recommend it for under 10 yo's though. OMG SOOOOOOO GOOD

    Comments about The School for Good and Evil:

    OMG!!!!!!!
    THIS BOOK WAS SO AMAZING!!!!
    It usually takes my a few months to finish a book, but this book took me only a few weeks not because it was a quick story or anything, it was like a 488 page story or something. The longest story I've every read. One day I read nearly like 200 pages in one day. Anyway this book was unbelievably exciting. You just can't stop reading it. I loved the friendship between the two main characters.If I could I would buy this book for everyone in the world to read I would.This is not like your original princess and witch fairytale, I find it better. I was going to buy this book like 2-3 years ago, but I'm happy I didn't because I think I wouldn't of enjoyed and understand it when I was younger, so I think this book is more for people between 13-21 years of age. When I went to school one day I found out that my friend also read and loved the book, we talked about it for like sooooo long. So it is also a book that will be always on your mind. SO BUY THE BOOK IT IS SOOO AMAZING.

      We've all accepted that we are never going to go to Hogwarts again and I don't easily compare books to Harry Potter but The School for Good & Evil has earned that comparison. There's are no words for how much I loved this book.
