9780141186009: Modern Classics Molesworth (Penguin Modern Classics)

School is 'wet and weedy', according to Nigel Molesworth, the 'goriller of 3B', 'curse of St Custard's' and superb chronicler of fifties English life. Nothing escapes his disaffected eye and he has little time for such things as botany walks and cissy poetry with an assortment of swots, snekes and oiks. Instead he is very good at missing lessons, charming masters and putting down little brothers, in fact he is exceptional at most things except spelling. Wildly funny and full of sharp observations on life, the ‘Molesworth tetralogy’ is magnificently complemented by the illustrations of Ronald Searle

About the Author:

Geoffrey Willans, a one-time schoolmaster, in addition to writing the four Molesworth books, now in Penguin Classics in the U.K., was a feature writer for the BBC before his untimely death at the age of forty-seven.

Ronald Searle, is best known as the creator of the St. Trinian's schoolgirl cartoons, collected for the first time and published by Rookery as St. Trinian's: The Entire Appalling Business. His work includes nearly forty covers for The New Yorker, political illustrations for Le Monde, and the animal illustrations of Beastly Feasts! (Overlook).
