My favourite books 20: The St Trinian’s Story

Perpetua, 1959.  This edition Penguin, 1961.

Keeping the Penguin classic humour thing going here…  St Trinian’s today means either badly aged movies from days of yore, or truly awful movies from today.  In the 1950s, Searle and St Trinian’s hit the cultural high-spots – this anthology includes contributions from C Day Lewis, Robert Graves, Bertolt Brecht and Flanders & Swann.  And the cartoons are still brilliant.
