This unique anthology of Spike's poems and stories for children presents his classic children's books in a way they have never been seen before. The large format gives ample scope to make the most of Spike's own illustrations, lovingly coloured especially for this book.
Spike did not regard children as small grown-ups, but as an entirely different species who live in a secret, magical world which very few adults understand. His poems were inspired by listening to his own children, and subsequently his grandchildren, and marvelling at the way they could invent
new words or incorporate sound effects into their everyday language. In 'borrowing' their language, Spike created a range of poems and stories which are a delight to read to younger children, for older children to read themselves, or for grown-ups recapture some of the magic.
Spike Milligan, the much-loved entertainer, broadcaster and writer,was widely regarded as the most influential British comedian since the Second World War. On his death in 2002, he was remembered as an 'irreverent and hysterical presence' by Prince Charles. Fellow comedian and writer Stephen
Fry described Milligan's writing as 'absolutely immortal'. He was awarded a CBE in 1992 and an honorary knighthood in 2001.
