Based on Rudyard Kipling’s own adolescent experiences, Stalky & Co.
is a cunning story of mischievous nineteenth-century British schoolboys
attempting scholastic mutiny. The faculty and headmaster of a boys’
private school repeatedly pursue a trio of poetic pranksters—“Stalky,”
“Beetle,” and “Turkey”—as they wage war on fellow students and the
“establishment” with unwavering energy and creativity.
Stalky & Co. is at times poignant in its realistic portrayal of
boys negotiating manhood and hilarious in its illustration of their
relentless attempts to beat the system, even in the face of creative
punishment and a savvy housemaster. Listeners of all ages will delight
in this tale of ingenious schemes and rebellious antics. Download and start listening now!
