This collection of stories all feature deserving schoolboys being punished by a strict schoolmistress. Typically set in boarding or preparatory schools, they take place at a time when corporal punishment, usually by cane or slipper, occurred on an almost daily basis. Each story features a schoolmistress who is a stickler for discipline. Often beautiful in appearance and perhaps possessing a softer side, she is nevertheless quite strict, and doesn't hesitate to mete out six of the best with a whippy cane or slipper on a naughty boy's bottom whenever she deems it appropriate. Despite being subject to quite painful chastisements at her hands, many of the boys on the receiving end are often quite smitten with the pretty schoolmistress and some go out of their way to get themselves punished by her. Written with a nostalgic feel, these stories hark back to a time of yesteryear, capturing a delightful innocence and naivete.
