Best children's book for adults. Touching, politically incorrect theme (imperial Britain) and beautiful. Too good for kids (they would not appreciate its profound simplicity, honesty and history).

A story, told in verse, of a young man and his life's adventures from babyhood to grandparent hood.

Illustrations are charming.
