Last christmas I received Harry Oliver's two other books (March Hares and Monkey's Uncles, on the origins of words and phrases, and Black Cats and April Fools, on supersitions) and thoroughly enjoyed dipping in and out of both of them I purchased a copy of Cat Flaps, and it's just great. Harry condenses the history of inventions into funny and short entries - perfect toilet reading. If you're stuck for a gift, you can't really go wrong with this little gem! Looking forward to whatever Harry turns his attentions to if he pens another one.
