Mr Majeika by Humphrey Carpenter
Book DescriptionAs 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, 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, Paperback (March 2009)» View all books by Humphrey Carpenter
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.
