Publisher's Summary

The king of farce strikes a royally hard slap to the face with this gloriously funny study of the life of Paul Pennyfeather, an Oxford expulsion who finds himself a job as a teacher, only to discover that his fellow educators are no better than a rag-tag bunch of oddballs, rascals, and even criminals! As an attractive and wealthy parent of one of the pupils is thrown into the mix, along with the chaos of the school sports day, no one is safe, least of all Paul Pennyfeather.
