9780141189352: St Trinian's: The Cartoons (Penguin Modern Classics)

Teachers and small children beware!

Welcome to St Trinian's - the young ladies' academy where arson, stabbings and witchcraft are among the maidenly arts offered on the curriculum, where gunpowder is available from the tuck shop and where smaller girls are tortured on the rack by prefects at playtime.

Chaos reigns and vultures circle overhead as this fiendish band of schoolgirls hold black masses in the cellar, torment souls during violin practice and conduct scientific experiments with bat's blood in the lab, while sadistic school mistresses teach unarmed combat in the gym and oversee murderous mayhem on the hockey field. Vividly imagined in Ronald Searle's exuberant, energetic cartoons, St Trinian's is a hilarious, Gothic satire on the English boarding school that has inspired naughty schoolgirls for generations.
