I've always loved Pam Ayres since I first saw her on UK TV as a child, which was many moons ago, hehehe. This collection of her poems had me laughing all the way through. For someone looking for a lift when feeling down I would recommend this book as a way to cheer yourself up.

I absolutely love Pam Ayres!! When driving long distance and everyone is asleep I listen to her poems! I love her accent!! Her poems are so funny and then her reciting them is fantastic listening. I originally bought the book because I wanted the words to 'How god made the duck billed Platypus' and got a wealth of enjoyment from reading the whole book!! I am not sure if my hubby enjoyed me reciting all these poems..but he smiled and nodded and made it look like he was interested!!
