Anthony Buckeridge - Author

A generation ago, Anthony Buckeridge was the equivalent of J K Rowling. His schoolboy hero, Jennings, was as much the talk of ten-year-olds as Harry Potter is now. Anthony Buckeridge was a headmaster and worked in the Fire Service during the war before becoming a full-time writer. ‘Jennings’ featured in stories he used to tell his pupils.

He was awarded the OBE in 2003, a year before his death.
