    An unusual treatise on sex education, dating back to 1922 in America. There is a strong bias towards abstinence and indeed there are threats of hellfire and brimstone as a result of, shall we say, 'interference'? With its hectoring tone and finger wagging stance, it is alarming to think that this book was treated as a serious authority on the subject of sex and even more alarming that, even today, some of the points it makes are taken seriously in certain parts of the world.

    The behaviour of a Siamese cat is never predictable, as all owners well know. The calm of the Tovey household is once again torn to shreds when Doreen's cat Seeley instantly loathes the new arrival, Shebalu, and she - all five inches of her - loathes him back. And then, even worse, they become firm friends, and team up to create havoc. The characters of 'Cats in the Belfry' return with a vengeance: Father Adams, Miss Wellington and Annabel the donkey.
