When Frankie Blewitt brings home yet another F-for-failure school report, his parents decide to send him to boarding school.
At first he is just relieved to be away from his horrible parents, but then he realises that something really weird is going on at Crammar Grammar. Frankie discovers that the headmaster, Dr Gore, has plans to turn the students into robot-like super-brains using his brain-drain machine! With the help of his new friends, Neet and Wes, his crazy French nanny, Alphonsine, and a poodle named Colette, can Frankie save the day? A fabulously funny story, shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, from acclaimed author Anna Kemp.
