Synopsis

The Best of Jennings Four Utterly Wizard Adventures All Jolly Well Complete and Unabridged by Anthony Buckeridge

Fossilised fish-hooks! What a nimble wheeze - four Jennings adventures in one wizard volume! You'd have to read like blinko to get through this lot before lights out. Jennings Goes to School was the one that jolly well started the whole shebang when JCT Jennings was sent to Linbury Court School as a boarder and met a rather decent chap called CEJ Darbishire, who quickly became his best friend. In his first term Jennings also had to face up to some frightful bullies, turning the tables on the rotters and becoming head of his form into the bargain. In Jennings Follows a Clue, he tries his hand as an amateur sleuth and we get to know all of the characters a little better, including Jennings' classmates Venables, Atkinson, Temple and Bromwich major. Jennings establishes his own super-top-secret den in Jennings' Little Hut and leads Darbishire even further astray with his newt-brained, shrimp-witted schemes in Jennings and Darbishire.; Anthony Buckeridge's Jennings stories have been delighting readers young and old for almost sixty years with the disastrous scrapes into which the irrepressible schoolboy blunders and the delightful language adopted by Jennings and his chums. Whether this is a 'class reunion' for you, or whether you are a 'new boy' meeting Jennings for the first time, in The Best of Jennings you will find a friend for life.

About the Author

Anthony Buckeridge

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.
