* BoardingSchool - in the obvious sense, st custards IS a boarding skool. However, more importantly, these books are a savage {{parody}} of the traditional boarding school story, replacing pranks and jolly fun with cynicism and dark observation. Nigel okasionally makes reference to traditional skool stories, but clearly knows them for fantasies.
