    My father had Jennings and Darbishire on his shelf, which I read and re read on many an occasion as I grew up Since then, I ve found various other installments in the series in second hand bookshops, and they re always a damnably fun read This was no exception I laughed my ass off on many an occasion as Jennings problems unfolded Jolly good fun, in an old school, 1950s way

    Nouveau roman retra ant les fac ties de Bennett dans son coll ge anglais La construction d une cabane en constitue le fil rouge car, on s en doute, cette activit ludique est strictement prohib e par le r glement.Pas de la litt rature de haut vol, mais 10 ans, a passe encore.

    I love this book If it was possible I would give it 6 stars.

    One of the Jennings classics This book is a delight It evokes a lost world, not just childhood itself, but an England that is gone.

    How I would have liked to go to a school where I could scramble around in the mud by a pond and build huts I didn t but this book made me feel like I did Thank God though by the sound of the other reviews I have the original texts No flapjacks and pounds for me What s wrong with a doughnut They re nice.

    Part of me fears that I am finally growing out of Jennings, but I hope that isn t the case, and I don t really believe it is I just think it s possible to read him too often Most of the chapters of this volume started life as plays on the radio Having read all those plays recently it was a bit too soon to be reading all the same plots all over again But there is nothing wrong with the book and I m sure that after a few years have passed I will enjoy reading it again, but it would probably be Part of me fears that I am finally growing out of Jennings, but I hope that isn t the case, and I don t really believe it is I just think it s possible to read him too often Most of the chapters of this volume started life as plays on the radio Having read all those plays recently it was a bit too soon to be reading all the same plots all over again But there is nothing wrong with the book and I m sure that after a few years have passed I will enjoy reading it again, but it would probably befun to be reading it to children, to see the reaction of those who have never read it before and for whom the story still holds an element of surprise

    My 4 star rating is for the book with the original 1964 text, NOT the awful radio show and NOT the execrable revised text text paperback edition.

    A working class boy me meets jolly japes at a public for non Brits read that as private school with Jennings and Derbyshire Loved it.probably my version of a fantasy novel at such a tender age 8 I think , although I suspect it also led to my still festering resentmentthan 40 years later of the class system in the UK and how it is underpinned by a privately educated elite Tories out Sorry feeling all political this am lol

  10. says:

    This one really establishes the winning formula that all the best Jennings books follow without fail, namely an episodic style with one or two main plot points to bind everything together.Highlight Mr Wilkins goes for an evening swim.
