Funny and fast-paced adventure following Frankie Blewitt as he starts at the terrible Crammar Grammar boarding school.

The first in a fantastically funny series from award-winning author of Dogs Don't Do Ballet, Anna Kemp, with illustrations from the creator of the bestselling Claude series Alex T Smith!

When Frankie Blewitt brings home yet another F-for-failure school report it's the last straw for his overachieving parents and they decide to send him to the Crammar Grammar boarding school. At first he is just relieved to be away from home, but he soon realises that there's something really weird going on at Crammar Grammar...

As Frankie tries to find out the secrets of the school he discovers that the headmaster, Dr Gore, has plans to turn all the students into robot-like super-brains using his Brain-drain machine! With the help of his new friends Neet and Wes, Alphonsine his crazy French nanny and a poodle named Colette, can Frankie save the day before it's too late and change the F-for- failure to F-for-fantastic?

`...vigorously comic, and the plot's twists and turns are expertly judged...a bonkers treat' The Financial Times
`[Anna Kemp] is a name to watch out for' Caroline Horn in The Bookseller
'An action-packed story full of humour, and illustrated with quirky black-and-white line drawings - the perfect combination for newly confident readers and a brilliant, boisterous book to share' Close Up Magazine
