Tailbot Baines Reed (1852 - 1893) was an English writer specializing in books for boys. His best known stories about boys' schools were The Fifth Form at St Dominic's and The Adventures of a Three Guinea Watch. Talbot Reed more than any other late 19th century writer was responsible for the popularity of school stories in British children's fiction. Tom Dick and Harry was published in 1894. Shortly after arriving at his new boys school, it is learned that Master Jones has come from a girl's school. He is given the nickname of Sarah. Even after this less than stellar beginning Tom is well respected and liked by the other boys. There some moments of drama, amusingly told, such as when our hero is unwittingly involved in almost blowing the school up! The story is filled with amusing events and a sure winner with young readers as well as their parents.
