'Right! Stand by for orders to lower away. I'm going to take charge at the reception base. And don't worry... This is one of my guaranteed foolproof plans. It can't possibly go wrong!' Term is over and, after a short camping expedition that leaves poor Mr Wilkins determined never to go through such an horrific experience again, Jennings is off to stay with his Aunt Angela. There, he meets Emma Sparrow who needs to hide her collection of stray animals from the exasperated caretaker. When Jennings comes up with a seemingly flawless plan, he congratulates himself on his quick thinking. But with Jennings at large, things can always be expected to go disastrously wrong! 'fossilised fish-hooks!' Jennings at Large is one of a series of books by Anthony Buckeridge which grew out of a popular series of radio plays for the BBC's Children's Hour. Published between 1950 and 1989, and known for Buckeridge's inventive schoolboy slang ("fossilised fish hooks!," "crystallised cheesecakes!," and others) these books were translated into several languages and were favorites among a vast assortment of kids all over the world. Sometimes described as "Harry Potter without magic, but funnier," and "P.G. Wodehouse for kids," you'll want to check out the other titles in this series available from Post Hypnotic Press.
