In which a gang of boys finds thousands and thousands of pounds hidden in the cellar of their school.

Well-written, entertaining, and gives a really good sense of tenement life in Glasgow. The last seven pages or so come as a shock. Wonder why this hasn't been turned into a film...

George Friel (1910-1975) was a Scottish writer. He was born in Glasgow as the fourth of seven children, and was educated at St. Mungo's Academy and the University of Glasgow. After a period of service in the army, he spent the rest of his life working as a teacher in Glasgow.

Friel's fourth novel, Mr Alfred M.A., made it to the "100 Best Scottish Books of all Time" list.
