A Conversation for Molesworth Books
Ormondroyd Started conversation Jan 19, 2000
Lovely to see an Entry on these great books, which helped save some of my sanity during my unhappy years at a horrible, reactionary Grammar School.
Wasn't there a follow-up book, some years after the original series, about Molesworth's life as an adult?

I too succumbed to burying myself in the Molesworth books when I was in secondary school.Weren't they great!!
I've got all of them somewhere.I really must check out my mums house and see if I can find them.Yes I think they are worth a re-read for old times sake.
Its great when someone jogs your memory of something that you have forgotten.Thanks.

Sadly I don't know
I discovered The Compleet Molesworth when I was seven, and went on to read the whole thing cover to cover a few times. To me, back then, it was the greatest thing ever. I even dug out a few blank excercise books and went on to write my own version of it. Seriously, I still got 'em!
Methinks I want to start reading again

I agree. I think I will go to my nearest bookshop today and see if I can get hold of a copy.

Yes, but have you heard the radio serialisation?
better still, have you got a copy on tape? I'm longing to hear it again . . .
Mike A (snowblind) Posted Jun 6, 2000
No. My, that would be interesting. How old is this thing?

They don't write like that anymore.

The radio serialisation? I heard that yes... I'm sure the BBC Radio collection must have a tape out...

Is this the radio serialization you mean? http://dl.dropbox.com/u/375890/Down%20With%20Skool.rar
Not all the episodes are there - I didn't tape the first one because I didn't realise how good it was going to be - but most of it is.
