‘It’s the boys in Form Three who are the real problem – and Jennings in particular.’ What starts with an innocent game of cricket leads to a whole new batch of adventures for Jennings and Darbishire. Climbing onto the school roof to recover a ball, they find themselves stuck and, fearing a night in the cold, they break into an attic. When Mr Wilkins discovers Jennings stuck in his sleeping bag and resembling an Egyptian mummy, he cannot believe his eyes and demands that the tomfoolery cease. Then Jennings wins a pig at a parish fete, and unable to find a more suitable owner, he decides to hide it in the school potting-shed. ‘Jumbo-jet of a hoo-hah’

Author biography:

Anthony Buckeridge Born in 1912, Anthony Buckeridge was sent to boarding school in Sussex at the age of eight. He went on to university before working as a tutor in a preparatory school, and later became a fireman during the Second World War.

Buckeridge was the first writer to use prep schools as a setting for his stories and, as such, is the creator of the infamous Jennings. The ‘Jennings’ titles have sold over six million books worldwide.
