'You can't compete in famous outer space tournaments wearing heavy great clodhoppers like diver's boots. You've got to be on your toes, darting about like a streak of lightning'. Who would have thought that a Ping-Pong Championship of Outer Space could have caused so much trouble? Determined to play the monumental tournament, Jennings and Darbishire end up getting themselves in more of a mess than they could have imagined. Then, when Mr Wilkins' attempts to clear out the school lost property cupboard go strangely awry, he does not have to look far to guess who the culprit is; Jennings, of course! 'Good wheeze!'

Jennings helped get the Fire Brigade in time to put out the fire, but luckily the Head didn't ask any questions. And then there was the business of the racing pigeon. This book is an account of life at Linbury Court School where the schemes of Jennings and Darbishire have unexpected results.About the Author:
Born in 1912, Anthony Buckeridge was sent to boarding school in Sussex at the age of eight. He went on to university before working as a tutor in a preparatory school and later became a fireman during the Second World War. Buckeridge was the first writer to use prep schools as a setting for his stories and, as such, is the creator of the infamous Jennings. His 'Jennings' titles have sold over six million books worldwide
