All skools make some sort at teaching the pupils things and the headmaster pin up a huge timetable of lessons ect. which make the heart sink when you look at it.

Nigel Molesworth is back, this time taking the tinies in hand and showing that they can survive the first term - as long as you avoid the prefects and show all due respect to Molesworth 1. Back to Skool might be particularly hard on Mater and Pater, but think of those poor new bugs, forced to be their best at Latin, English, foopball and French (Armand in his striped shirt and feeble questions). Just follow his timeless advice, however, and you too could be Topp.

About the author (2009)

After active service during the Second World War he joined the BBC as a feature writer. He died in 1958, at the age of 47. Ronald Searle was born in 1920 and educated at the Cambridge School of Art. He was a hugely successful graphic artist and pictorial satirist, and also the creator of the wonderfully wicked St. Trinians. He died in 2011, at the age of 91.
