** In ''J.R.E. Ponsford'' in the same book, a boy is being bullied at his boarding school; so he re-animates the corpse of a former star cricket player at the school, who beats the bullies with a cricket bat, killing or severely maiming them (it's not clear which.) Lampshaded when the boy's mother is called into the school and admits it was a tad excessive of her son's "friend" to do this.
