Banking on Form was so funny people said, that theydaren’t read it in public places—but Pook in Boots iseven funnier!Leaving the Bank, Pook continues his aggressivecareer in the Royal Marines, where he mixes with earlsand orphans—leading them all cheerfully to perdition,willingly aided by the smallest Marine on record, theHon. Lesley Pilkington-Goldberg.Opposing Pook and his dislike of discipline is thatmagnificent character Sergeant Canyon—fifteen stoneof bad-tempered Saxon warrior—whose epic encounterwith Pook in the Unarmed Combat Class isstill remembered with awe by those who saw it.Running through the story is the love-interest ofPook’s girl-friends—unexpectedly connected with hiscelebrated inter-Service bout with the notoriousBandsman Bangle, which is described here for the firsttime. Because, as Pook remarks, “any fool can read alove yarn but it takes grit to read this type of literature.”We meet the shrewdest tactician of them all inLieutenant Tudor—late house-detective at a Londonhotel—whose fondness for the ladies is second onlyto his skill in battle. What happens to Pook during thedisastrous Exercise Seaweed, followed by theextraordinary Passing Out Parade and a hilarious partyin the West End night-club, will confirm his positionas the biggest laughter-raiser in the business.Colonel Tank sums up wisely when he observes:“Sometimes I wonder if I’m C.O. of a crack fightingregiment or the manager of a West End hotel for spies.”
