After a particularly fine Poire Belle Hélène, to celebrate his tenth birthday, Magnus's beloved father suffers a heart attack. His film-star mother has no time for him, so Magnus is banished to Dryden Park Preparatory School.

Bullied by the school's prize athlete, Bathurst, and terrified by the old fashioned form-master, Raptor, what distresses Magnus most is the school menu. Only dreams of puddings past keep him going.

Lonely and unhappy, he forges an uneasy alliance with two other victims of the spartan regime to form a secret society of Scoffers. After dark they creep into the school kitchens to perform feats of gastronomic daring. Inspired by Miss Charlotte, the Assistant Matron, their efforts culminate in a surprise Feast at Midnight in honour of her birthday, an event as rich in chocolate and culinary flair as it is in drama and unexpected consequences.

A Feast at Midnight is a glorious concoction of recipes and heroism, a simple story of how the most primitive of human desires—for scrumptious grub—triumphs over unhappiness. Guaranteed to provoke hunger and to make you smile, this is a book destined to appeal to all ages and appetites.
