Overview

The Head of Kay's by P. G. Wodehouse.

Set at the fictional public school of Eckleton, the story centres upon the "house of Kay's", the riotous boys therein, its tactless, unpopular master Mr Kay, and Kennedy, the head boy.

The story features practical jokes, fighting between the boys, burglaries, a mugging in the local village, politics amongst the houses of the school, a trip to an army-style camp, and plenty of cricket, rugby, and other school sports.

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse was an English author and one of the most widely read humorists of the 20th century. Born in Guildford, the son of a British magistrate based in Hong Kong, Wodehouse spent happy teenage years at Dulwich College, to which he remained devoted all his life. After leaving school he was employed by a bank but disliked the work and turned to writing in his spare time. His early novels were mostly school stories, but he later switched to comic fiction, creating several regular characters who became familiar to the public over the years.

I thought you where having a bad dream." Hawkclaw said leaning over her anxiusly. "I was havinga good dream, mousebrain!" She purred. Redtear stood up and streched. "Since im up, why don't i get on dawn patrol." Hawkclaw nodded. "Okay." He padded out to ask featherpelt if he and redtear could go on dawn patrol. "Hmmm?" Said finchheart as she woke from the vocies of the new warriors. "Maybe flowerheart will take you on dawn patrol." Groaned battkeclaw. Redtear sighed. She wished flowerheart had stayed her menter. "Greyeye came in with turkykit owlkit and jaykit clinging on to his back, tail, and head. "Get these kits off!" He moaned. Turkykit jumped off and climped onto smallily, who was siting down. "Get these kits out!" Screeched bigheart. Redtear snorted. He din't have such a big heart as his name said. Battleclaw helped his dad and sisster carry the kits to the nursery. "Great news!" Said hawkclaw bursting in. "We can go on ghe dawn patrol!" He looked at all the warriors who where up. "Good morning bigheart battleclaw smallily finchheart yellowfur redtear gingerflight littlecrstal greyeye and spiderheart?" He said meekly. Redtear sighed. She padded outside to let hawkclaw deal with all the seiner warriors. Mistpaw of skyclan raced in her eyes wild. "Sawdowclan....lots of cats.... need help...." mist paw gasped. "I will get moonstar!" Redtear told mistpaw.**** ivyclan raced though the woods whith mistpaw leading them. "Faster! Faster!" Redtear heard a kits vocie. She felt a pain on her back. She stopped and looked at her back. Jaykit had caght a ride on her back!" She looked at moonstar as she raced though the woods. She began to run agin. She had seen owlkit on moonstars back which probly meant... she looked at greyeyes back where turkykit was riding. "Moonstar!" She yowled. Moonstar stopped and looked at redtear. "Jaykit!" She cried. "Owlkit and turkeykit are here to!" Yowled tigerlily. "Redtear hawkclaw take the kits back to camp." Moonstar said.*** hawkclaw anf redtear put the kitd back in the nursery where hawkclaw began to scold them. "YOU DON'T SNEAK OUT OF CAMP TO SEE A BATTLE OR PLAY WHITH OTHER KITS THAT ARNT EVEN RELATED TO YOU!!!!!!!!!!" Hawkclaw yelled. The kits whipered and sqooted over to a corner. "You where to rough." Whispered redtear to hawkclaw. "What hawkclaw meant was we where looking forward to that fight and now we can't go and help defend skyclan." Said redtear looking over at hawkclaw. "Sorry kits." Mutered hawkclaw. "Its okay hawkclaw." Said jaykit. "Yeah." Said turkeykit. "Meh." Said owlkit. Redtear sighed and padded toward the freshkill pile. "Just be good kits from now on. No more pranks." Redtear called over her shoulder. Butterflypelt csme into camp with a puzzled look on her face. "Whats wrong butterflypelt?" Asked hawkclaw. "The whole clan was charging toward skyclan canp."
