Jennings Of Course
‘You can’t compete in famous outer space tournaments wearing heavy great clodhoppers like diver’s boots. You’ve got to be on your toes, darting about like a streak of lightning’. Who would have thought that a Ping-Pong Championship of Outer Space could have caused so much trouble? Determined to play the monumental tournament, Jennings and Darbishire end up getting themselves in more of a mess than they could have imagined. Then, when Mr Wilkins’ attempts to clear out the school lost property cupboard go strangely awry, he does not have to look far to guess who the culprit is; Jennings, of course! ‘Good wheeze!’
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.
