After watching a cricket match for the first time in person, I sat and listened to some of the comments from spectators. A lot of them were knowledgeable comments but as usual most led to not-so-heated arguments. So I decided to do some fact finding on my own and soon realized that there's more to the game than I had anticipated. I also came across some historical records that I thought were really funny. From this was born 'Cricket is we ting'.
So, I took all this info and decided to write this book but I also wanted people to have fun while learning so I used limericks, which the English love, and I think you will too.
'Cricket is we ting' is chock full of information written in a fun way simply to entertain and educate and if you're like me, after reading this book and after drying your eyes (you'll laugh till you cry!), you may also want to go into the records and have as much fun as I did in researching the game.
Thanks and have fun!

'Cricket is we thing' took about five years to complete, what with my work and sometimes writer's block. But it was finally finished in 2007 and I only now got around to publishing it (2014). This is actually the fourth review of the book, redesigning and such. The name was changed from 'Grass' to 'Bonkers' to 'Everybody Loves Cricket' (also available here but in a more cartoonish style and a few changes), and finally to 'Cricket is we ting' which is a familiar slogan here in the West Indies. I think this is the final rendition and I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did writing it.From the Back Cover:
We know that you love Cricket.
We know that you love fun.
So here they are together,
with something for every one.
There's humor and there's history,
there's facts and figures too.
Written in the limerick form,
especially for you.
LOVE THE GAME!
