Delightful (Daily Telegraph)

About the Author

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.

These books seem to be perfectly pitched for young fluent readers. My grandson loves the silly magic in a familiar school setting and thought the badly behaved kid popping up on tv programs was hilarious.

More trouble is in the air as an unwanted guest comes to St Barty's, book characters come out of books, Class Three go to France, Mr Majeika's spells are far too strong and Hamish Bigmore is being very mischievous!

Okay, let's talk about the author of this brilliant book, Humphrey Carpenter. This renowned author has written award winning biographies, the famous Mr. Majeika series, well-known plays and well-loved musicals. Now here are some facts you probably didn't know about him: He studied in Oxford where he was born and brought up, his wife was a co-author and his old career was working for the BBC as a producer before becoming a full time author!

I would rate this set of three tales 8/ 10 and I would recommend it to all fluent readers from 6 - 100 (and beyond).

My six year old son loves the Mr Majeika books and reads them by himself on a night. You can hear him chuckling to himself as he does. Would highly recommend any of the Mr Majeika books.
