Huddersfield, United Kingdom (PressExposure) September 25, 2013 -- ABOUT THE BOOK
This collection of wonderful stories is a veritable modern bestiary of humour. The comic figures come thick and fast. - from Bartholomew the Bear to Caractacus the Duck and the amazing Skatty Kat.
The venues vary from zoos and circuses to Count Hemlock's palace and Mirands'a voyage among the sea-shell caverns of St Bride's Bay.
The lopsided Corporal of Grenadiers is typical of adult catastrophe but is meant for the ear of the most mature as well as those of kids. Some of the cool cats get away with it but the nauseous human never does.
The animals win through in the end, from the pondweeds of home to the mystical caves of Miranda and the Triumph of Tadema the Tortoise.
These can be applauded by those of all ages, read them right now, about the Fair Folk of Iffland and of Hecktide, the great Dane, whose home is in Northern Hampstead.
Finish them! That will clinch it - twenty-three pieces of resistance representing the cream of the cream of the story-telling scene.
The whole marvellous concatention of chuckles and extrovert guffaws is highlighted by the grimmer tale of The Grave Diggers, a play this time, to celebrate all the unnecessary deaths of the new British Death Camps, the N.H. Trusts, at the end.
The very last piece, in dialogue form again, is called The Plague. It involves outrageous baby-booting scenes, performed only recently at the Royal Court Theatre, Sloane Sq, London no less. Everyone enjoyed it, they said, as they wiped away their tears.
Try reading it all right now, but have your hankies ready!!
