A sharply funny story for younger readers that pokes fun at the much-too-cosy writers of children's books. Jasmin must invent a story that will satisfy a monster, when she wins a place at a school for gifted young authors!
When Jasmin wins a place at the Dorothy Wordsearch School for Gifted Young Writers, things look fishy. How come Miss Birdshot, the wizened old housekeeper, is so incredibly strong? Why do Jasmin's fellow pupils keep disappearing? And who exactly is the mysterious Mr Collins? Soon Jasmin finds herself literally writing for her life!
