Gillian Cross continues her wonderful series starring Barny, Spag, and Clipper--with Richard Mitchley creating kids, parents and, best of all, the school principal. It's the hundredth anniversary of Bennett School, and everyone is hard at work creating a project that could win the prize. Spotty McGrew's slang dictionary is a riot of words insulting his classmates. Barny, Spag, and Clipper believe their Futurescope is unbeatable. Each group is sure it will win the coveted award. Mitchley cleverly captures the pupils bragging, spying on each other, and trading good-natured barbs. This banter and competition is fun and believable. S.G.B.
