The First Fifth Form
The author whose brilliance gave us "Binkie" and "Nicky" may be counted upon for a succession of amusing incidents, a high standard of character drawing, and in The First Fifth Form she more than maintains her reputation. Pat, Grace, the Parker-Pratts and Betsey are living persons whom we know intimately long before the Fifth Form has risen to its full dignity. In the process Winkle and Betsey show up with startling effect, while Pat patiently works, by turns aided and hindered by Grace, but always up against the self-conceit of the Parker-Pratts.
