Format: Paperback
Ronald Searle was one of Britain's best-loved cartoonists, and Geoffrey Willans (if I remember correctly) a former teacher. If there is such a thing as a genius, then Willans and Searle together were one.

The Molesworth books purport to be instructional manuals by an English public schoolboy named Nigel Molesworth, about how to survive the school experience. From the day the first was published in 1953, they became a wild success, especially with schoolchildren. They are still in print and still eminently applicable (which says something both about the quality of the books, and about the nature of the British school system, which even at that point hadn't changed much in 400 years).

The wild misspelling that permeates them caused hysteria among parents, and their removal from many school libraries (the books, not the parents). Nevertheless, many phrases from them have since gone into the English lexicon, particularly "enuff said" and "as any fule kno".

Format: Paperback
Here we have St.Custard's finest, Nigel Molesworth, expounding on how to be top in each and every subject of the school curriculum, as well as how to survive as a new boy at school (including how to write home), and how to handle grown-ups. As ever, the great Molesworth brain is a wonder to behold, his spelling splendidly original, and Ronald Searle's illustrations simply brilliant.

Old-fashioned now, but for those who read if when they were younger, it's still funny now. And the phrase "As any fule kno'" is a classic, stlll quoted in newspapers to this day. I was sad to read that the author died in his 40s.
