    1. Jennings is, as usual, jumping to conclusions and involving poor Derbyshire in his near disasters. As the book begins, the school's most important alumnus, General Merridew, is locked in the library accidentally on purpose. In the next episode, Jennings and Derbyshire go (no they don't yes they do) to a cricket match. The episodes in this book are not as intertwined as some of the others but the story that runs through the book is that Jennings overhears a conversation about their not-so-belove [...]

    2. By and large, this tale is an easy read with clever little twists, providing a wholesome story. To me, it almost struck as a remembrance of simpler times with fewer worries (if there ever was such a time). There’s no swearing, not violence, no sex, no smoking, no drinking, etc. I know – so not me. But, nevertheless, I enjoyed this little jaunt down tame Boys’ Boarding School Lane. I especially enjoyed some of the crazy exclamations the boys had – ‘Petrified Paintpots!’, ‘Cristalize [...]

    3. Yet more excellent childhood memories. These felt almost otherworldly when I was young, and that hasn't really changed, they're no more archaic now than they might have been in the eighties, and the boarding school concept still feels as appealing/awful as it did to me as a small child, and I just find these immensely comforting to revisit. I don't remember enjoying this one specifically before, but now as a series I find them all similarly great, as if they were just chapters of one great long [...]

    4. This book is filled with typical Jennings high-jinks and the story ticks along perfectly nicely, but there are no absolute classics in here for me.Highlight: General Merridew owns up to the crime of locking Mr Carter and Mr Wilkins in the library; the headmaster's reaction leads Jennings to lament over the inconsistency and unfairness of adult attitudes.
