Don't be put off by the boring title. Jan Dean has assembled a great collection of poems. Many are funny - yes indeed - but there are some very clever and thoughtful poems in the mix. With poems from poets new to me as well as firm favourites such as Allan Ahlberg and Spike Milligan this is a great read. I loved Andy Seed's "Hindsight" - Yesterday / I went to get my hindsight tested./ It was perfect. / Looking back / I should have known that. Great illustrations, too.
