9780141191706: Whizz for Atomms: A guide to survival in the 20th century for felow pupils, their doting maters, pompous paters and any other who are interested (Penguin Classics)

With one mad yell the mob, armed with stumps and bits torn from desks, surge away down the pasage, trampling the masters under foot. A buket of water fall on GRIMES and the term end in a series of wizard rags and japes. Cars arrive, driven by parents with drawn, white faces.

Nigel Molesworth is dragging St. Custard's into the 20th century in the company of 'felow pupils, their doting maters, pompous paters and any others who are interested', via the Elizabethans and the Wild West. Most importantly, he has some important lessons in how to treat Girls, what to do with a tee-vee, what a holiday will really involve, and how to survive the uranium age that is sure to hit any time now. CAVE!

About the Author:

Geoffrey Willans was born and educated in England and spent time not only as a tiny pupil but also as an extremely perceptive school-master. 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.
