Read full description of the books How Tom Beat Captain Najork and His Hired Sportsmen:

The other day Alan Jacobs tweeted: Do yourself a favor & find a used copy of the best children's book EVER, Hoban's *How Tom Beat Captain Najork and His Hired Sportsmen.*

Well, I didn't need to find a used copy, because my local public library has three take-outable copies, and I took one out, and of course read it in five minutes, and will go back and read it again. The Quentin Blake pictures add enormously to the delight of this book, in which a boy who fools around a lot manages to be the hero of the story - without much difficulty, it appears.

Hoban throws in ridiculous, made-up words which somehow make sense, and while I doubt if anyone has any idea of how the various games Najork imposes on Tom are actually played (Blake makes no pretence that he has any idea either), they seem to make clear enough to Tom and the opposing team.

Great fun.
