I bought a copy in our local bookshop, and found the limericks so clever, funny and instructive, that I promptly ordered 4 more copies from Amazon for my limerick-loving friends. UnfortunateIy I now feel a bit guilty for not staying loyal to my local bookshop. Perhaps Mike Twister could write a limerick for me about my disloyalty!

A funny, irreverent but still informative take on history. The witty limericks make for a fast-paced read, but it informs as well as entertains. Highly recommended for anyone interested in history, limericks and laughs.

My Wife picked this up at the British Museum and I was a bit sceptical but it turned out to be a very enjoyable read! Witty and clever, can pick this up whenever and have a little chuckle!

Brilliant limericks that the whole family found hilarious. The limericks are about historic events and it gives details of the events below the Limerick ( if u want 2 read about it)

A great read - lots of laughs but also extremely well researched and informative. Very enjoyable and am ordering a couple more copies for those people who are hard to buy for at Christmas time.
