How Tom Beat Captain Najork and His Hired Sportsmen

Another book, this time from my childhood. How Tom Beat Captain Najork and His Hired Sportsmen, by Russel Hoban and Illustrated by Quentin Blake. Very British, a boy who likes to fool around tries to avoid mutton and cabbage sog and reading off pages of the nautical almanac. I read it to my kids, you should read it to yours.
