Product Description

About the Author

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. His 'Jennings' titles have sold over six million books worldwide

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The adventures of madcap Jennings and his long-suffering friend Darbishire were written almost 80 years ago but still are as fresh and exhilarating a read today. They are ideal for readers aged 9 + but don't let their classification as "children's literature" turn your nose up at them; like the William books they are ageless and classless. With catchphrases and nicknames which will become part of your vocabulary and a host of beautifully drawn, irrepressible characters who become your firm friends, these books are treasures. No family should be without them!

My mum read this to me when I was a child. I cried laughing. So did she.

Although I am an adult reading these stories for the first time, I cannot help but laugh and laugh and laugh at the stories, to the point of needing tissues to wipe my face. I am not sure if boys from nowadays will feel the same as certain things are a bit out of date, there is no mobile or DS in sight, but it is sure funny!
