Here is a collection of stories about school life that will appeal to every kind of school-goer. These are incidents from the authors own life, when he was a shy, quiet boy in boarding school, who chose the library over the football field, and was known as the best cook among the Boy Scouts. Read about beloved and eccentric characters like the strict Mr Oliver, Miss Babcock, the school nurse, and the Principal who once went missing. Get the shivers at the strange and wonderful happenings at school, from the lady in white roaming the school grounds to the ghost who turned up in a bed at the dormitory! Hilarious and heart-warming, this collection brings together well-loved Ruskin Bond classics as well as brand new stories and is for every reader who has enjoyed going to school or is in school right now.
