‘It’s the boys in Form Three who are the real problem – and Jennings in particular’. What starts with an innocent game of cricket leads to a whole new batch of adventures for Jennings and Darbishire. Climbing onto the school roof to recover a ball, they find themselves stuck and, fearing a night in the cold, they break into an attic. When Mr Wilkins discovers Jennings stuck in his sleeping bag and resembling an Egyptian mummy, he cannot believe his eyes and demands that the tomfoolery cease. Then Jennings wins a pig at a parish fete, and unable to find a more suitable owner, he decides to hide it in the school potting-shed… ‘jumbo-jet of a hoo-hah’

Anthony Buckeridge

Anthony Buckeridge OBR was an English author, best known for his Jennings and Rex Milligan series of children's books.

He also wrote the 1953 children's book A Funny Thing Happened which was serialised more than once on Children's Hour.

He was awarded the OBE in 2003.

The stories of middle class English schoolboys were especially popular in Norway, where several were filmed. The Norwegian books and films were rewritten completely for a Norwegian setting with Norwegian names; Jennings is called "Stompa" in these.

More recently, the first four books were published in an omnibus edition by Prion, The Best of Jennings: Four Utterly Wizard Adventures All Jolly Well Complete and Unabridged (2010). In 2011, six titles were produced as unabridged audio books
