School of Fear: Class Is Not Dismissed!

By Gitty Daneshvari (Trade Paperback, 2011)
Have no fear! The frightened foursome are back in this this wickedly funny and phobia-inducing sequel to School of Fear!

Everyone is (still) afraid of something...

Madeleine Masterson is deathly afraid of bugs, especially spiders;

Theodore Bartholomew is petrified of dying;

Lulu Punchalower is terrified of confined spaces;

Garrison Feldman is frightened by deep water. . .

After discovering that each of her former students has secretly regressed, headmaster Mrs. Wellington brings Madeleine, Theo, Lulu, and Garrison back for mandatory summer school. Facing their fears is terrifying enough, but when they are joined by a fifth student (and another mysterious entity lurking in the woods) things start to get even scarier.

Former Contrafilms Director of Development, Gitty Daneshvari is the author of the adult novel The Makedown. This is Gitty's debut children's book, and it was inspired by her many childhood fears. She hoped that one day they'd help her, and, as it turns out, they did. She lives in New York.

Carrie Gifford spent many years teaching and directing children's theater before starting Red Cap Cards with her husband. Her signature pencil-and-ink style is inspired by her childhood memories. She lives in Portland.
  • "This sequel uses the wry humor and outrageous situations that characterized the first book and makes for an entertaining read." (School Library Journal).

  • "Daneshvari expertly keeps the humor fresh and the pacing frenetic." (Kirkus).

  • Praise for School of Fear (Book 1):
    "Imagine a humorous middle-grade novel by a less self-absorbed Woody Allen to get an idea of this intelligent and witty children's debut." (Publishers Weekly).

  • "Suggest this one to fans of Lemony Snicket's 'A Series of Unfortunate Events.' " (School Library Journal).
