This classic card-play book by Victor Mollo is given a new dimension by the use of the Menagerie characters. Sophia the Siren has become the bridge tutor to some rich and ambitious ladies. To give them the best education money can buy she enlists the help of the Griffins. Who better to teach them safety plays than Karapet, the unluckiest man since Job? And who could show them how to win the post mortem better than Molly the Mule? From the Hideous Hog, they learn how sheer genius can triumph over adversity, and from the Rueful Rabbit, how sheer luck can triumph over genius.
