School of Villains

Original title: Escuela de Villanos

Unwelcome to the School of Villains!

Here, literary villains study to become true villains. Although Colmillo Villalobos knows he’ll never pass: he’s a ridiculous villain, a werewolf afraid of the dark, for Hades’ sake!

After a magical and disastrous attempt to impress a writer visiting the School, Colmillo is in for a most chilling punishment... unless he manages to get out of it. To do so, he will embark on a surreal adventure with Clara Malagente, his fierce best friend, and Merche Sarmiento, the School’s most brilliant and wacky inventor. On top of that, they will have to avoid Gary Stu, an annoying hero’s apprentice determined to lead them on the right path.

It breaks the fourth wall, appealing directly to the reader and mixing writers and characters.


Its humor is aimed at the middle-grade reader, but there are also double-entendres and subtle references for more adult readers.
