“It describes the school days of a boy named Tom Brown.  Tom is just an ordinary fellow, but the school isn’t because it is the world famous one of Rugby.
It is said by some that this is the story of the author’s own life at Rugby but it could well be the life of any boy plucked from a comfortable home and plunged into the hurly-burly of boarding school existence.
Tom Brown has to work hard, play hard and fight hard for his rights.  From the moment a Stage Coach takes him to Rugby Tom starts to live a life so full of good things and bad things that the reader has difficulty in tearing himself away from the book.  This book was published just over a hundred years ago but it is as up-to-date as any school story on the library shelves.”
