It's up to Mr Majeika to try to outwit her...

Humphrey Carpenter worked at the BBC before becaming a full-time writer in 1975. He was the author of 14 of the well-loved Mr Majeika titles as well as two Shakespeare Without the Boring Bits titles for children. He was also the co-author, with his wife Mari Prichard, of The Oxford Companion to Children's Literature. He was an eminent figure in the world of adult literature and published award-winning biographies including, among others, those of J. R. R Tolkein, C. S. Lewis, W. H. Auden, Benjamin Britten and Spike Milligan. From 1994-1996 he directed the Cheltenham Festival of Literature and for many years he ran a young people's drama group, the Mushy Pea Theatre Company. He wrote plays for radio and theatre and was a regular contributor to the Guardian. Humphrey died in January 2005.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun way to encourage reading 13 Oct. 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this for my grandaughter's 8th birthday and she loved it. It was her first Mr. Majeika book and she now wants to read more of them. She is a competent reader and devours books so it's good to find a series new to her, and to wean her off the Rainbow Fairy books! The story is great fun and there are plenty of black and white illustrations to lighten the text. Probably ideal for readers too old for the Horrid Henry series - and for children learning music at school!
