Osbert is the ultimate anti-hero from Schwartzgarten. This is not a book for teachers to read. It might give them nightmares.

So far there are three Schwartzgarten volumes: Osbert, The Woebegone Twins, and The Lily-Livered Prince. All have superb Chris Riddell covers that belie the devilment contained within.

Osbert, takes revenge on his school teachers and not in the usual schoolboy style. They say Christopher William Hill is like Roahl Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory / Matilda etc), perhaps he is, but somehow these seem

darker and

more twisted.
