I read this a couple of anecdotes at a time and I enjoyed it. It's light hearted and fun and you can't help laugh at the things kids say. It's a bit twee and small doses is the way to go.

A lovely little book celebrating the innocence of children.
Nov 16, 2012 Karen rated it it was amazing
This book is absolutely hilarious. If you need a quick pick-me up, then this is the book for you. As each story is told in sections, you can pick it up at any time, read a few and be laughing out loud in minutes. The saying "out of the mouths of babes" is certainly true, and these stories reflect how children say things without any thought or consideration, with the funniest results. READ IT NOW!!

A really wonderful pick-me-up of a book. I enjoyed 'A Wayne In A Manger' and 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Stars' is just as funny with some fabulous stories of the things that children say.

It's lovely to be reminded of just how innocent most little children are and the dryness of the Yorkshire humour that runs through the book.

Recommends it for: anyone who needs some quick cheering up.
I loved this book! Enjoyable, funny and heart-warming. It takes you to an innocent world of children, full of fun and laughter. I devoured the book in an hour and had a smile on my face all day.

Some may say this writer is far fetched but for me he is an entertainment and gives great pleasure.What could we all learn from Mr Phinn? To shut up and listen.

A school inspector recounts various anecdotes.

Amusing in places, but not as funny as ‘A Wayne in a Manager’ (by the same author).
