  • When the space-craze sweeps through Linbury Court School, the corridors reverberate to a crescendo of voom-voom noises as rockets piloted by "Butch Breakaway" Jennnings and his "bald-headed scientist", Darbishire, take off for the moon.
  • Mr. Carter prophesies that the craze will wear off, and so it does - but not before Jennings has stuck his head into trouble; nor before he and Darbishire have herlped General Merridew to recapture some of the widler moments of his lost boyhood.
