ladys Maud cried, because she had taken a sudden dislike to the village idiot; and Mike settled himself in the corner and opened a magazine.

He was alone in the carriage. Bob, who had been spending the last week of the holidays with an aunt further down the line, was to board the train at East Wobsley, and the brothers were to make a state entry into Wrykyn together.

For fans of the school story genre this is one of the best. It is a light, humorous book without the intense adolescent relationships between friends at school, common in many school stories. This book traces the journey of Mike Jackson, a cricketing genius, from his first days at Wrykyn to his removal to another school Sedleigh, culminating in the victorious match between Sedleigh and Wrykyn.
