‘Clever and wily. He should plan a trip to the other place.'

Prof Charles Elliott: Former Dean of Trinity Hall, Cambridge

‘Simeon delights us, educates us and informs us. Unique and enlightening.'

Prof David Cranston: Associate Professor of Surgery, University of Oxford

Simeon has two ambitions. The first is to become famous, which is why he writes this book, and the second is to meet the White Rabbit. While pursuing these goals he takes time to air his views on Oxford, Mr Bean, the internet, on how the British do not value words, and on a whole host of other things.

He guides us through Oxford’s history, landmarks and legends, and provides an entertaining and original introduction to the city.

Over-confident in his ability to reason, he enjoys talking with academics and students. He creates havoc in Blackwell’s, discovers an unpublished poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins, and lays plans to take the grin off the face of the Cheshire Cat.

Does he really meet the White Rabbit? It seems he does.
