This is the fourth installment of the hilarious Ragley-on-the-Forest village school series.
It's 1980: recession and unemployment have hit Britain, a royal wedding is on the way, and the whole country is wondering Who Shot JR?
As Jack returns for his fourth year at Ragley-on-the Forest School, there's a definite chill in the air.
Village schools are being closed down all over the place - will his be one of them?
As school life continues - Vera, the school secretary, has to grapple with a new-fangled electric typewriter, Ruby celebrates ten years as the school cleaner, and the village panto throws up some unusual problems - Jack wonders what the future holds..."Wry observation and heartwarming humour in equal measure". (Alan Titchmarsh).
