"The Compleet Molesworth" collects all four Molesworth books into one : Down With Skool!, How To Be Topp, Back in the Jug Agane and Wizz For Atomms. It chronicles the misadventures of Nigel Molesworth, the Goriller of 3B - author, satirist, philosopher and keen observer of skool life. While loosely based on boarding school life in the 50s, ex-schoolmaster Geoffrey Willans' sharp eye and sharper wit make this hideously funny. No one is safe - masters, bulies, gurls, cads, sops, oiks, parents, the skool dog - all are ridiculed with aplomb and brilliantly illustrated by Ronald Searle. Like any skoolboy, Willans often takes us off into fantasy and daydream, but also enjoys ending each chapter with a little bit of Nigel's wordly wisdom. Pon my soul dere darling Arabela but life is TUOUGH...but not so tough with Molesworth in your pocket.
