First on the shelf, next to Winnie the Pooh!,
This review is from: Silly Verse for Kids (Puffin Books) (Paperback)
Divinely silly, glorious verses for kids of any age by the wonderfull Spike Milligan.
My dad gave me this book when I was 4 or 5, and I soon memorised 'Mary Pugh was nearly two, when she went outdoors...' because it had me in hysterics. I still recite it now, at age 43, whenever I need a little cheering up. And it works!
Spike Milligan was a comic genius, whose brilliant silliness could be appreciated by all agegroups. And who can resist the delightfully bonkers 'On the Ning Nang Nong'? Only a miserable old fool!
Thanks dad and god bless Spike!
