KIRKUS REVIEW

For an often howlingly funny picture of English school life, these ""difficulties and distractions"" which Arthur James Wentworth, B.A., suffers are uncompromisingly British and thoroughly entertaining. For Wentworth, of inflexible conscience, the dupe of circumstances -- and his pupils --, faces the deterioration of discipline and utter disaster as time after time routine and innocent events precipitate him into a madhouse of misunderstandings. A precision, a classic fidelity, to a system and a type, this has subtle as well as obvious situations to enjoy.
