- High on Bunter's list of needs, taking only second place to large quantities of tuck comes an abundance of comfort. Bunter is not the most energetic of pupils and his armchair came in for more than its fair share of service. So when it gave up the struggle it was essential that a new chair be found.

But when Dexter came out he showed a surprising amount of interest in the old chair and the Famous Five began to wonder why.
