The hero of Not Bad for a Bad Lad starts off as a typical lairy lad, but when school and he completely fail to gel, he soon turns to criminality. He is not the world’s most successful criminal, and is sent to Borstal. The Borstal he is sent to is also home to a stud of Suffolk Punch horses, who prove to be his salvation.
