Some Bum Notes but a Lot of Laughs, too.
on 28 April 2014
A mixed bag here, some wickedly funny, some (Little Miss Muffet) unfunnily suggestive and crude, some boring (Old Osama had a Farm). My yardstick is that these rhymes should be suitable for at least older children with an understandable liking for ribald humour, and this book is probably borderline. Adults may find too many of yesterday's men the subject of derision (Jacques Chirac?) so enjoyable in parts, only.
