I did not fully appreciate the humour, which was so intrinsically British and stitch-in-the-side causing, when I read it as a kid. But, I kept remembering bits of it over the years and giggling to myself. The most abiding sentiment is of when the four friends dressed up as clergymen and one of them chooses to call himself sister so-and-so instead of brother. William, a little jealous of not having hit upon that idea says 'swank, always trying to be different from other people'. Many times I have been treated to this comment by the younger sister upon a manifestation of my obstinacy typical of a middle child, and it's as funny every time I hear it. I remember that particular boy standing proud, refusing to be pressured by public opinion. I lay claim to no such noble emotion, but its still hilarious. Then of course there's Violet Elizabeth Bott, who's 'thix' years old and who, even for William, is a handful. There is the usual ensuing of utter chaos and William emerging grubby at the end of it all. They invite themselves to an arch rival's party and much to the dismay of the mild host, polish off the cakes, pastries and sweet rolls, leaving the wholesome sandwiches and savouries untouched. It does not end well, but they had a lovely dinner and you really can't ask for much more than that.
