"When I say that Pam Ayres ought to be the Oxford Professor of Poetry, even the Poet Laureate, I am not being facetious ... Ayres uses simple verse forms - comic ballads or folk song idioms - to make poignant observations about tiresome husbands, gossiping wives, false teeth or battery hens.
I find her work sweet and sour, gentle and sad, and often very moving in its wistful way" (Roger Lewis Daily Mail)
"Her wistful, funny and perceptive verse captures both the joy and unfairness of life" (Sunday Times)
"A wonderful, wonderful book" (Paul O’Grady)
"Her humour, which verges on the black at times, is contagious and so original" (Daily Telegraph)
"A national treasure. There are clear comparisons between Pam and Sir John Betjeman" (Daily Express)
The wonderful new collection of poems, anecdotes and short verses from the inimitable Pam Ayres.See all Product description

It was the poem about the little dog on Page 96 that made me buy it. It reduced me to tears because we have a little dog that fits the bill (not dead thank goodness). I saw a write up in the Telegraph and that is what made me immediately buy the book. Just wish I could contact Pam Ayres to say how much I loved it.

Pam Ayres is very good with words in poetry it is the way she says them and what simple situations can make one laugh

We keep it in the downstairs loo and its great for just picking a poem at random and having a good laugh. What a brilliant poet, understands life incredibly well.
