Rise of the School for Good and Evil

We rated this book:


Rise of the School for Good and Evil is not a great book. The book is about filling in the backstory. It is about what happened to the School Masters of the previous books. It starts with a new student called Aladdin who should be put in Evil but is put in Good. The School Masters wonder what has tipped the balance. Can they keep the balance or will they suffer losses instead?

I felt parts of it were slightly creepy, more than the rest of the series. Rise of the School for Good and Evil has several pages of gorgeous full-color images of the text, which I definitely enjoyed. I feel that the book could do with a little less description at the beginning of the story; I found it hard to follow during the first few chapters. I really like the plot aside from the fact that there is a fair amount of violence.

I recommend Rise of the School for Good and Evil to children aged eight to fourteen who read for enjoyment.
