F in exams : the very best totally wrong test answers by Richard Benson( Book )

This work is a collection of some of the more creative and hilarious ways that students have tackled challenging exam questions. "F" stands for "funny" in this perfect gift for students or anyone who has ever had to struggle through a test and needs a good laugh. Celebrating the creative side of failure in a way we can all relate to, this book gathers the most hilarious and inventive test answers provided by students who, faced with a question they have no hope of getting right, decide to have a little fun instead. Whether in science (Q: What is the highest frequency noise that a human can register? A: Mariah Carey), the humanities (Q: What did Mahatma Gandhi and Genghis Khan have in common? A: Unusual names), math, or other subjects, these 250 entries prove that while everyone enjoys the spectacle of failure, it's even sweeter to see a FAIL turn into a WIN. --From publisher

After 200 years of farming in Yorkshire, the Benson family has been forced to sell up. Like so many farmers, they found that modern economics make it impossible for the land to support them.

Set after the sale of the farm, its aftermath and the family's recovery against a background of cataclysmic change in the English countryside, Benson tells of his childhood memories, the lost generation of people in his village and his own attempts to fit in
