Our front cover this month features an illutration by Mark Longworth for Gillian Cross's new paperback, The Revenge of the Demon Headmaster. Puffin publish this book in April 1995 (see the Gillian Cross Authorgraph for full details) and we are grateful to them for their help in using this illustration.
An orphan boy, John, is adopted by the dragon Montague Bunsen-Burner and his wife - Montague has been told to diet, to keep off the roasted people for a while. In a series of witty adventures John befriends a wolf, solves the dragon's failure to rear eggs, and the dragon daughter takes her flying exams. Great fun, and the separate episodes make this a good read-aloud.
