Format: Hardcover
Geoffrey williams emerged from this book as a new top rank humorist, Ronald Searle excels himself with 120 drawings, brilliant & merciless being a perfect match for the satiric prose, incredibly bad spelling & wicked humour that I think appeals to everyone.

A follow on from 'down with skool', features the trials and tribulations of Nigel Molesworth at St Custards school. Using his own brand of outrageous spelling, it includes his advice on how to cope with "bulies, snekes, grown-ups and other chizzes".

It's a cheeky book that makes you laugh & realise that maybe your spellings not so bad after all. You too could be on topp if you follow his timeless advice.. or not.

Lots of fun & will make even the most miserable smile...

If you've never read this, get it. It's a take off of life in a public school and is hilarious. I've been trying to get a copy for years, and at one time it was unobtainable!I will be cherishing this copy even though it is 2nd hand and slightly worn - both of which add to its character.

Format: Paperback
This is the second book in the Molesworth tetralogy and it’s as wonderful as the first. As well as more insights into the world of St Custard’s school we get amusing tales of Christmas at the Molesworth residence. Molesworth opines that Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” isn’t anywhere near as good as stories about space. The fascination with space is a lovely feature of these books, highlighting that they were written in the nineteen-fifties. Nowadays Molesworth’s tips for success in lessons would be called life hacks and he’d be a youtube vlogger. Searle’s wonderful illustrations complement the book splendidly. I enjoyed this book so much that I began reading the third Molesworth book straight after. I hope his amusingly bad spelling doesn’t rub off on me.
