Series: School

Summary (From the publisher):

What do you do if your Latin master sets an unexpected exam in the middle of term (and on a Saturday morning too)? How do you cope with a fiendish uncle who digs up your carefully tended cricket pitch, or with the housemaster's cat, which steals the special goodies you have saved for tea?

P.G. Wodehose wrote these lively, funny short stories soon after he himself left school. They are just as inventive and full of good humour as his later ones about Bertie Wooster and his man Jeeves.
