- The trouble with Jennings is that he has his own extraordinary way of doing things. Given an Ideal Printing Outfit for his birthday, he hits on a Great Idea - a newspaper called the Third Form Times. And what could be hotter news than a photo of a French fishing boat in the local harbour taken with Jennings' new camera? But Darbishire's French isn't up to much - nor is the fisherman's English. Result: the boys are given a large parcel of fresh fish which they smuggle back to school and which in a moment of desperation Jennings shoves up the irascible Mr. Wilkin's chimney.
