Spike Milligan once again gives us an original story that both children and adults will love. As a school teacher of 8 - 9 year olds, I introduced this story to my class and it has been constantly read since - definately the most 'worn' book in the classroom. They are always including 'Tim and Rose' in their stories and can recite parts of the book word for word. I have never seen children love a story so much! The characters are both original and imaginative and the plot is simple and includes jokes, rhymes etc that will appeal to all ages! As a child I remember loving this story and have enjoyed being able to introduce other children to this creative, fun and most of all enjoyable story!

Delightful short childrens story written and illustrated by one of my all time favourite comedians, Spike Milligan... Fun to read, as well as listen to, puntuated with sketches and drawings, and, as with the written words, all in Spike's own hand... A Caligaphic Masterpiece... Wonderful and inspiring insight into Spike's somersaulting imagination...

we had this as kids on a 33" vinyl.the book is great but the cd is even better as its read out by spike who does all the silly voices...binklebonk, silly sausage, mudwiggle and the rest. even now when i play it (not just to the kids! i've even played it for friends after the pub!) with the music i still get misty eyed and have to excuse myself! I'm 37! buy the book by all means but you'll enjoy it more if you get the cd aswell cos when you read it to the kids you can copy all spikes voices!
