Withering Tights (Tallulah Casey #1)
Winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2010! The misadventures of Tallulah Casey...Hilarious new series from Queen of Teen - laugh your tights off at the (VERY) amateur dramatic antics of Talullah and her bonkers mates. Boys, snogging and bad acting guaranteed! Picture the scene: Dother Hall performing arts college somewhere Up North, surrounded by rolling dales, bearded cheesemaking villagers (male and female) and wildlife of the squirrely-type. On the whole, it's not quite the showbiz experience Tallulah was expecting...but once her mates turn up and they start their 'FAME! I'm gonna liiiiive foreeeeeever, I'm gonna fill my tiiiiights' summer course things are bound to perk up. Especially when the boys arrive. (When DO the boys arrive?) Six weeks of parent-free freedom. BOY freedom. Freedom of expression...cos it's the THEATRE dahling, theatre!!
Winner of Roald Dahl Funny Prize: The Funniest Book for Children Aged Seven to Fourteen 2010.
Praise for TEACHING LITTLE FANG: "Bold and clever, this book is a romp, really funny" Spectator "Mark Swallow's debut has enough difference about it to set it more than slightly apart" Literary Review "Chronicling the frustrated youth's anxieties, excitements and obsessions, it is sharp and sometimes hilarious" Independent
