Description

How on earth did Mr Wilkins' tweed jacket find itself on the bonfire guy? Could it have something to do with Jennings' and Darbishire's attempt to raise money for charity?

And that wasn't the only occasion which brought down Mr Wilkins' wrath on the head of the unfortunate Jennings: Mr Wilkins cried, "What in the name of reason did you do that for?" when Jennings mistakenly emptied all the water from the school swimming pool. Or had he?

Reviewed on 27th August 2023

Jennings and his friends return for another set of chaotic adventures caused by misunderstanding and/or wilful misinterpretation of rules and instructions.

This feels like a perfectly workable entry to the series. The plot comes together nicely into the usual three-act structure, with excellent foreshadowing and callbacks.

But it just doesn’t quite have the energy and hilarity that I found in the previous story - Jennings in Particular - which felt one of the best.
