Mr Majeika by Humphrey Carpenter

Book Description

As a rule, magic carpets don't turn up in schools, but this is exactly what happens when Class Three's new teacher flies in through the classroom window and lands on the floor with a bump. 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. And to everyone's delight it looks as if Hamish will have to remain a frog because Mr Majeika can't remember the spell to turn him back again! With Mr Majeika in charge, suddenly life at school become much more exciting - there's even a magic-carpet ride to Buckingham Palace!

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

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.
