The Water BabiesThe Water Babies by Charles Kingsley

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This book is a classic. It is a fairy tale with a moral. A bit like eating cardboard at times. Full of remarks related to the political and social scene of the times, so was sometimes hard to follow.

Have now moved on to the very funny “Thrift” By Phil Church. Will let you know when I’ve finished it.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Very funny romp through a term at an English Secondary school. All the horrors of a group of unruly kids lead by a team of failing teachers, whose own lives are failing at the same time.
