Knocked Into A Cocked Hat

"Insanely funny about the appalling way rich kids are brought up, this spunky British trio knock the Lemony Snicket siblings into a cocked hat, says Amanda Craig..."

Craig was impressed by Sam Llewellyn's Little Darlings, and also by The Fish In Room 11 by Heather Dyer.

But Craig's review, in yesterday's Times, had been sloppily served by the paper's copyeditors, who wrongly give (or do not correct) a definite article at the start of Llewellyn's title ('The Little Darlings') and then attribute an illustration extracted from The Fish In Room 11 to 'Heather Dyer's The Tale of Emily Winsnap', having carelessly misunderstood a passing reference to Liz Kessler's mermaid novel, correctly attributed in Craig's trademark Read On box.
