It has taken me all this time to find another book that had the same effect. Now We Are Sixty by Christopher Matthew is that book.
I stood in the bookshop unable to stop laughing. And I'm no where near sixty yet! I gave a copy to my father in law for Christmas and he loved it.
It does help if you are familiar with the original poems by Milne, that way you get the rhyme in your head and the poem flows better. but even if you are not you will appreciate the remix of of Milne's work. The weird joining together of a wistful longing for the past, plus cynical observations of modern life and sureal poetry really works well.
What else can I say? The book will be a classic of humourous poetry for years to come. Buy it, read it, love it.
And he loved it. Everything - including the clever cover design - is a delight and a feast for Pooh reading parents.
In fact he has been talking about it almost every time we have met since. All his friends now seem to be buying copies as well - at least those who know the original (this is essential otherwise you won't get it, I gather), so there must be a run on this in the bookshops of Devon.
The perfect parody.

Very good, but be warned, for younger listeners you would net to explain the background against which some verses were written, politics, inflation and so on.Published 4 months ago by A. A. Strange
