This is a really super story - I should know, I wrote it. My name is George, and I'm Ted's second-in-command: Ted is centre-forward of the Junior X1 at King's School in Otterbury and a first-class chap. He's the leader of our company, and the story began with our battle against Toppy's company. We were so worked up in the excitement of voctory that Nick Yates kicked a football through the big window of the classroom nextdoor to the Headmaster's study. Poor old Nick! When the Head said he'd have to pay for it he looked like a puppy with distemper: he'd no more hope of raising £4 14s. 6d. in a week than of going to the moon. so we signed a Peace with Toppy's company and planned Operation Glazier to get the money for Nick. And if you want to know how it worked. and what happenend after it was over, you'd better get cracking on Chapter 1.
ps. George is right, although he sounds a bit too pleased with himself - it's a very good story and we think everyone between 9 and 12 will enjoy it - girls as well as boys. The Editor
