The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based booklist available as an online-only Bulletin feature. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

Beyond Hogwarts:  A Dozen about Strange Schools

--selected by Deborah Stevenson, Editor

Vampires and evil geniuses, dogs and dragons—they all have to get an education somewhere, right?  Here’s a dozen books about schools where the weird, inhuman, or just plain dangerous is standard daily fare.  Don’t forget to bring an apple/blood supply/dog bone/doomsday machine for the teacher.
