Love it

Luke Darlington, who retired last year as head of a south Gloucestershire primary, has entertained countless pupils with C S Forester's only book for children, and wants to see it back in print.

"Poo-Poo and the Dragons is overshadowed by Hornblower and few people know about it, but it's a gem. I have my original 1942 edition with Robert Lawson's imaginative illustratios. Poo-Poo's adventures with two well-meaning dragons and the recognisable folk they meet instantly and predictably engage the readerlistener. Children enjoy the naughtiness and the whimsical ways in which trouble is sidestepped."
