The [[BritishAccents golden prose hem-hem]] of our hero hav been enjoyed by generations of tiny pupils and often continue to hold its allure into adulthood. molesworth fans are a rare but rabid breed who rekognise each other by use of sekrit code phrases such as 'cheers cheers cheers', 'poo er gosh' and 'as any fule kno'. molesworth's influence on a generation or 2 of British humorists was surely immense if subtle but he would be too much the realist expect any credit.
