it was amazing

I adore these poems, my father can recite them all by heart and always used to trot them out whenever we looked like we were getting bored or restless, especially on long car journeys.

They are funny and especially appealing to children, and although they are quite dated in parts, I dont think it really matters, my young cousins love them especially Jim as they have bits that dont date at all;

Now just imagine how it feels,
When first your toes and then your heels,
Are slowly eaten bit by bit,
No wonder Jim detested it!
