    Genre: Adventure

    First Published in March 1968 - 182 pages

    This contains thirteen short stories about Biggles' childhood in India. The book has a short prologue called 'A Word in Advance' and a short epilogue called 'In Conclusion'. The book opens when Biggles is roughly 11 years old. His mother is not in the book, nor does it say what happened to her. His father is inattentive at best, absent completely at worst, and the young Biggles is left to his own devices for most of the novel, although adults occassionally step in to act as mentors. Biggles is the only British boy in the district, a remote part of central northern India, and all of his friends are Indian boys. He grows up speaking fluent Hindi (this will help him in the later books) and running about the countryside with a small rifle to defend himself from Tigers, Bears, and the occassional nasty human.

    The stories are as follows:-
