Also love his vocabulary, nice to have to look up a new word every now and again.
As much as I love to hate Irene, Bertie's horrible mother, I did start to notice that ALL the women in Bertie's life are pretty pushy; you'd almost think the Steiner School where Bertie is an Elementary student, could be re-named School for Fascist Females. Seven year-olds, Olive and Pansy, are little Irenes in the making. Olive insists that she and Bertie are going to be wed when they turn 20, whether Bertie likes it or not. (You wonder if that's how Irene got Stuart!)
At least Bertie has two MANLY men in his life, even if they are also seven years old - Tofu and Larch. Bertie represents the median between the Neanderthal Tofu, and the wimp Stuart, but can he remain well-balanced into the future?
I won't spoil the fun - but Bertie FINALLY turns seven in this book - and wait until you find out what he got for birthday presents. Sheesh. All the other Scotland Street denizens are here (plus a new character is added to the gang in this novel!) Fans will not be disappointed.
