    I asked my Year 1 class, ‘What’s the best thing that’s ever happened to you?’ 
    George Pointon asks his class a lot of questions. What do you want to be when you grow up? What do you reckon your parents do while you’re at school? Can you put that down, please? JJ, the stapler – can you put it down? 
    He’s also got a few for himself: what is he doing here? Who was he kidding, thinking he could teach? 
    But the course of true professional fulfilment never did run smooth, and there’s no backing out now. 
    In this book, George takes us along on his first year inside the messy, magical world of primary school teaching. In the company of five-year-olds – who are somehow wisdom, innocence and chaos incarnate – there is always lots to be learned.

    “It’s better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep.”"I am the most terrible animal that's ever existed.""Democracy is beautiful in theory; in practice, it is a fallacy. You in America will see that someday.""It's good to trust others but, not to do so is much better."“I feel, when we have no friends upon whom to lean, or to look for moral guidance." (Mussolini)Benito Amilcare Andrea Mussolini, born on July 29, 1883, who went by the nickname “Il Duce” (“the Leader”), was a deeply unbalanced tyrannical Italian dictator who created the dreaded Fascist Party in 1919. Eventually, he held all power in Italy as the country’s prime minister from 1922 to 1943. An ardent socialist as a youth, Mussolini followed in his father's political footsteps but was expelled by the party for his overt support of World War I. As an evil dictator during World War II (even murdering his own son by lethal injection) he greatly overextended his forces and was eventually killed by his own people in Mezzegra, Italy. Here, for the first time, are the words of the great dictator himself in his twisted manifesto on the political movement he started and is still so feared to this very day.

    The Damon Runyon Theatre Hour.  Damon Runyon is acknowledged as one of the great writers to come out of twentieth century America.  Runyon's short stories are almost always told in the first person by a narrator who is never named, and whose role is unclear; he knows many gangsters and has no job that can be gleaned from his musings, nor does he admit to any criminal involvement; He’s a bystander, an observer, an average street-corner Joe.  Runyon described himself as "being known to one and all as a guy who is just around".  That line seems to say a lot about Runyon and his life.  It was like you were with him on some street corner hustle or some shady dive and he was filling you in on all the angles, all the gossip, all of life. He was who so many people wanted to be with……or so many people wanted to be.  Of course, the cliché about newspapermen and writers is that they are heavy drinkers, chain-smokers, gamblers and obsessively chase women with a sideline in the gathering of stories and facts and actually getting something written just before the deadline hits. That seems like Damon Runyon and his life summed up in one sentence.  His stories became legendary ways of looking that bit differently at America, of soaking up the atmosphere of a glamorous and rip-roaring age and distilling it into black and white type or, in our case, The Damon Runyon Theatre Hour.
