Format: Hardcover
This is the book we`ve all been waiting for especially those lke myself who are hard of hearing - it explains the origins of all those misunderstandings or `mondegreens` which have puzzled us through the ages because we misunderstood or misheard a particular phrase or lyric.`Glady the cross eyed bear` immortalised in the Perishers comic strip is there in all its glory along with many other well known and more obscure phrases, songs and sayings. We are very, very, amused.

Mick Drake author of the comic novel All`s Well at Wellwithoute

Format: Hardcover
This is a cleverly written book, picking up many of the unfortunate mis-hearings from which we all suffer from time to time. It is, though, not a book which could be read over and over again. One would need to keep it as a work of reference to be consulted occasionally. Nevertheless, it is a useful addition to my bookshelf.

This book is a fun wander through mis-hearings from a wide variety
of sources. The style is easy but not too jokey - an excellent "dip-in"
volume in pocket size hardback.
My only criticism - too short !
Quite without knowing it, I've been a fan of Lady Mondegreen most of my
life and now I announce myself her devoted acolyte.

Beware of laughing too much when reading this! It brought back many memories of mis heard conversations.
The tears were rolling down my face.
I would not recommend it for anyone who has just had surgery in case they burst their stitches!

I even found some things in there that I had been mis hearing all the time and had no idea. They did miss out one of my main mondegreens, the song " Poetry in motion " I sang in my head for many years as " Oh a tree in motion"

I bought this for my rather deaf father for Christmas, he found it very amusing! As did the rest of my family, however they're not all as funny as the ones in the blurb, but even so, I greatly enjoyed flicking through it!
