Loved this as a child and reading it now nothing has changed. Fabulous

Not for the squeamish... Sorry, the pc brigade.

I read this book as a young child. It was my first introduction to the genius that is Spike Milligan and it is a credit to his writing that he can write for children and adults alike without compromising on the silly and witty humour that is synonymous with one of the great wordsmiths if modern times.

This is a must read for children as an introduction to Spike's brilliant humour. Hilarious from start to finish.

I love every ape that there could be, from Chimpan-A to Chimpan-Zee

Very silly, very Spike Milligan. Not every page is Spike at his best but there are some absolute gems

I find these things so percular but they have to be seen as genius to be able to think these ups and stick to the poetry.
