Jennings' Little Hut

Jennings' Little Hut✹ [BOOKS] ✭ Jennings' Little Hut By Anthony Buckeridge ❃ – Supersonic hoo hah Jennings and Darbishire watched with mounting horror Earthuakes and landslides seemed to be happening before their eyes The little hut was heaving like a thing possessed ‘Oh fish Supersonic hoo hah Jennings and Darbishire watched with mounting horror Earthuakes and landslides seemed to be happening before their eyes The little hut was heaving like a thing possessed ‘Oh fish hooks’ breathed Jennings in dismay ‘He’s smashing up the place like a bulldozer’ The woodland at Linbury Court becomes suatters’ territory when Jennings comes up with the idea of building huts out of reeds and branches Jennings and Darbishire are thrilled with their construction which even includes a patented Jennings' Little PDF or prefabricated ventilating shaft a special irrigation drainage canal and a pontoon suspension bridge Gruesome hornswoggler But things can only go horribly wrong for Jennings when he is put in charge of Elmer the treasured goldfish and even worse when the Headmaster pays the suatters a visit And if Jennings thinks that a game of cricket will be far less trouble he’s going to be knocked for six Rotten chizzler. My father had 'Jennings and Darbishire' on his shelf which I read and re read on many an occasion as I grew up Since then I've found various other installments in the series in second hand bookshops and they're always a damnably fun read This was no exception I laughed my ass off on many an occasion as Jennings' problems unfolded Jolly good fun in an old school 1950s way I love this book If it was possible I would give it 6 stars One of the Jennings classics This book is a delight It evokes a lost world not just childhood itself but an England that is gone Part of me fears that I am finally growing out of Jennings but I hope that isn't the case and I don't really believe it is I just think it's possible to read him too often Most of the chapters of this volume started life as plays on the radio Having read all those plays recently it was a bit too soon to be reading all the same plots all over again But there is nothing wrong with the book and I'm sure that after a few years have passed I will enjoy reading it again but it would probably be fun to be reading it to children to see the reaction of those who have never read it before and for whom the story still holds an element of surprise How I would have liked to go to a school where I could scramble around in the mud by a pond and build huts I didn't but this book made me feel like I did Thank God though by the sound of the other reviews I have the original texts No flapjacks and pounds for me What's wrong with a doughnut? They're nice My 4 star rating is for the book with the original 1964 text NOT the awful radio show and NOT the execrable revised text text paperback edition Mark Williams reads one of Anthony Buckeridge's classic school stories abridged in five parts by Roy Apps 'Until Darbishire had finished making his famous ventilating shaft out of that disused drain pipe it was just as well they had got air conditioned walls It was only a little hut but Jennings was very proud of it And the other boys at Linbury Court were proud of their huts tooBroadcast onBBC Radio 4 745pm Sunday 31st January 2010Duration15 minutesAvailable until802pm Sunday 7th February 2010CategoriesChildren's Drama Classic PeriodA Pier production for BBC Radio 4 A working class boy me meets jolly japes at a public for non Brits read that as private school with Jennings and Derbyshire Loved itprobably my version of a fantasy novel at such a tender age 8 I think although I suspect it also led to my still festering resentment than 40 years later of the class system in the UK and how it is underpinned by a privately educated elite Tories out Sorry feeling all political this am lol This one really establishes the winning formula that all the best Jennings books follow without fail namely an episodic style with one or two main plot points to bind everything togetherHighlight Mr Wilkins goes for an evening swim I was probably about 8 years old when I read this and loved it as much as I loved all those Enid Blyton school stories Having 2 brothers meant I could relate to the adventures and scrapes that boys got into
