First published in 1950, and based on a much-loved series of "diary entries" in Punch magazine, this is one of the funniest books ever written. A.J. Wentworth is the pompous and ineffectual assistant Mathematics Master at Burgrove, a minor English public school. His pupils run circles round him and his colleagues can't help teasing him, but he remains blissfully unaware of all this, convinced that he is in control. Despite, or perhaps because of, his stuffiness and obsession with minor details of school routine, you just can't help loving Wentworth.
