Mr Majeika Joins the Circus by Humphrey Carpenter

Book Description

When Class Three and Mr Majeika go to the circus, it's definitely not as fun as they imagined. Everyone's a bit old, creaky and rubbish really! So when Mr Majeika casts a small spell to help the performers with their circus show, it's no surprise that Billy Balance, the slack rope walker, kidnaps Mr Majeika so that Mr Majeika can magically help him everytime! Things get worse whilst Mr majeika is trapped when Wilhelmina Worlock takes the opportunity to turn Class Three's classroom into a circus and the children spend all afternoon running away from lions and alligators! But Mr Majeika's magic saves the day, Class Three and the circus end up on the news and once again Mr Potter, the headmaster, misses it all!

Mr Majeika and Mr Majeika and the Lost Spell Book by Humphrey Carpenter Mr Majeika and Mr Majeika and the Lost Spell Book, Paperback (January 2014)

Mr Majeika can behave just like any ordinary teacher if he wants to, but something has to be done about Hamish Bigmore, the class nuisance, and so he uses a little magic to turn him into a frog - the only problem is he can't remember the spell to turn him back.

W. H. Auden by Humphrey Carpenter W. H. Auden, Paperback (February 2010)

Summarizes Auden's ambiguity: 'Here, as so often in his life, Auden adopted a dogmatic attitude which did not reflect the full range of his opinions, and which he sometimes flatly contradicted.'

That Was Satire That Was by Humphrey Carpenter That Was Satire That Was, Paperback (March 2009)

It started with "Beyond the Fringe" at the Edinburgh Festival of 1960. Four Cambridge undergraduates had created a satirical revue, which by its iconoclastic irreverence destroyed what the author describes as 'the culture of deference' so prevalent in the preceding decade. This book focuses on this period of social and cultural change.
