A You Wouldn't Want To Be: A Victorian Schoolchild Reviews

1 John Malam pulls no punches about the harsh regime and ultra strict rules - or 'lessons you'd rather not learn'! He adopts and appropriately didactic tone. spiced with jokes, speech bubbles and 'handy hints' to help pupils avoid the worst pitfalls. David Antram's caricatures add to the humour, and his irrepressible, wide-eyed children take it all in their stride - even the imposition of the cane, the nit nurse and the School Inspector (forerunner of the OFSTED team!). This is social history cloaked in hilarity. - The Guardian, Sept 2001
