Roosters

First published 1992 by Faber & Faber.

At school - the outwardly proper and conventional Edward Sickert’s - other problems show themselves. Douglas’s new nickname is something he can handle, but more sinister is his realisation that the good order of the school rests on on the existence of a mafia-like hierarchy, at the bottom of which are the Roosters, Year 7 boys chosen for their fighting skills and pitted against each other in lucrative tournaments.



Glasshouse

First published 1990 by Faber & Faber.

Wayne Harding is having a rough time at school. The glasshouse, glowing with warm light, casts an immediate spell on him. As he resolves to find out more about it, he can hardly imagine how swiftly and radically it is going to alter his life, leading him into an adventure where all his courage and resourcefulness will be needed, and bringing him some unexpected friends.
