Description:

...His present work is as entirely concerned with boys at school as his earlier volume with the same title, and once again the boys themselves recite their own adventures from their own standpoint. The astounding history of the "Doctor's Parrot," his conversation, death, and subsequent exhumation at the hands of "Bunny Mathers," will strike any one who knows boys intimately as an extremely truthful revelation. Nevertheless, in the matter of humour it hardly comes up to the story of "The Tiger's Tail." Smythe, who heroically hacks it off the mythical beast, will be an attractive figure to every reader... The book is cordially recommended both to the genuine lover of boys, and to the sentimentalist who creates an imaginary boy whom no real boy ever resembled. The latter reader will learn much from Mr. Phillpotts's pages.

—The Spectator, 30 May 1908 [Suggest a different description.]
