Jennings at Large
'Right! Stand by for orders to lower away. I'm going to take charge at the reception base. And don't worry - this is one of my guaranteed foolproof plans. It can't possibly go wrong!' Term is over and, after a short camping expedition that leaves poor Mr Wilkins determined never to go through such an horrific experience again, Jennings is off to stay with his Aunt Angela. There, he meets Emma Sparrow who needs to hide her collection of stray animals from the exasperated caretaker. When Jennings comes up with a seemingly flawless plan, he congratulates himself on his quick thinking. But with Jennings at large, things can always be expected to go disastrously wrong! 'Fossilised fish-hooks!'
