Or so we are lead to understand.
Toddy Scores Again: Being the School Adventures of No Ordinary Boy.
By Alfred Judd.
Thomas Nelson & Sons, London, n.d. (40s or 50s. My copy has 1954 written on the flyleaf in pencil)
Toddy, we are told a number of times in the first few pages, was not like other boys. He was unruly and whimsical and not really suitable for school. Oh, but he goes anyhow, and look at all the trouble his unruly whimsy and glibness get him into.
