Horrid High

Payal Kapadia
Select Preferred Format

If eleven-year-old Ferg Gottin had been bought from a store, his parents would have
returned him and demanded a refund. Because, you see, for the Gottins, parenting
is an experiment gone badly wrong. So when they find a school where you can
dump your kids and forget about them, they decide that Horrid High is the perfect
place for Ferg. But there’s nothing perfect about Horrid High—it’s quite unlike the
boarding schools Ferg has read about in storybooks. Ferg soon realizes that this isn’t
just a school for orphans, runaways and rejects. Horrid High is a training ground for
horrid teachers who are being sent out into the world to spread horridness! If that’s
not enough, Principal Perverse has a Grand Plan that he plans to reveal to every
horrid teacher everywhere. Ferg and his friends are the only hope that the children
of the world now have. Will they manage to save the day? Open the gates of Horrid
High and find out!

Payal Kapadia

Payal Kapadia grew up reading everything she could get her hands on; writing poetry for a captive audience (her family); and presiding over a club called the Stupendous Six, which did a stupendous amount of nothing. Her critically acclaimed debut, Wisha Wozzariter, won the Crossword Book Award 2013 for Children’s Writing. Payal writes full-time now (if you don’t count the time spent getting her two daughters to eat faster, please). She has authored Colonel Hathi Loses His Brigade, Puffin Lives: B.R. Ambedkar and Washed Up!, a reader for Australian, British and American schools. Horrid High: Back to School is the eagerly awaited follow-up to her bestselling school adventure, Horrid High. Payal has travelled to the Jaipur Literature Festival, Bookaroo, the Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival and the Kala Ghoda Festival. She reads to children at schools all over the country where she refuses to be taken seriously. Find her at www.payalkapadia.com or www.horridhigh.com
