Bealby: A Holiday is a comic novel written by H. G. Wells, first published in 1915. Thirteen-year-old Bealby rebels at his lot as a servant at Shonts estate, causing havoc at a posh party before fleeing. His week-long odyssey sees him befriended by an actress and her lover, then conned by a tramp into a failed burglary. Recognized in Crayminster, he barely escapes the ensuing chaos. Subdued, Bealby reunites with Captain Douglas, only to see his attempt to clear the man's name fail. Bealby returns to Shonts, ready to 'ave another go' at servitude.
