Letter: Gurls luv Nigel

Sir: It was great to learn that the glorious career of Molesworth at St Custards is to be republished as a classic alongside Eliot and Shakespeare ("Floreat Molesworth", 28 October). However, I must take issue with John Walsh's contention that Molesworth fans are almost exclusively male. As any fule kno, girls find skool just as hilarious as do boys, and have a pretty similar sense of humour, particularly at the age of 11 or 12. Enjoying silly jokes is not a male preserve.
