Villains Academy (Boxed Set)

About The Book

The first three books following Bram and his merry gang of almost-villains in this illustrated middle grade series that’s The Bad Guys meets Amelia Fang are now available together in a paperback boxed set!

Villains Academy is the most prestigious of villain schools where being bad feels so good and the classes are guaranteed to make students leave as fully formed villains…or in pieces! On werewolf Bram’s first day at Villains Academy, he doesn’t feel like a villain at all. The other monsters seem way scarier and more diabolical than he could ever be.

With the help of new friends Mona the elf-witch, Bryan the lion, Shelia the ghost, and Tony the skeleton, can Bram become the big bad he’s always dreamed of being? Together, the friends pursue the coveted Villain of the Week trophy, race against time to save a group of dragons, and compete in the Gruesome Games.

This laugh-out-loud paperback boxed set includes:
Villains Academy
How to Steal a Dragon
How to Win the Gruesome Games
