Of this book Morag Styles and Pat Triggs wrote in the BFK Guide to Poetry: "This really is a fabulous book, comic verse at its best. McGough doesn't take a crude or simplistic view of humour: there are poems which give you a good belly laugh; but many others surprise, provoke or quietly amuse. Rich in content and illustration, Caroline Holden provides brilliantly funny drawings".

About the Author:

In addition to several prestigious awards, including the Signal Poetry Award (twice), Roger received an OBE in 1997 for services to poetry. Roger McGough lives in London. Caroline Holden's work as an illustrator includes the picture-book illustrations for the well-loved Adrian Mole books. She lives in London.
