The Present Takers




A superb novel for younger readers by the Carnegie Medal winner.

Lucy's life is being made hell by Melanie Prosser and her bullying sidekicks -the present takers - who threaten her every day at school for presents and money. Too ashamed to tell her parents, and too scared to tell her teacher, Lucy finds an unexpected ally in Angus Bums. But when push comes to shove, there's only one thing to do: take on the present takers at their own game, to silence them once and for all.
