Nothing and nobody is safe in this third collection of hysterically funny poetry. WARNING: only read this book if you have a sense of humour!
There?s something really nasty on the bottom of my shoe
It?s making me feel sick. Can?t you smell it too?
I don?t know what it is, but it smells much worse than poo.
COLIN THOMPSON'S hilarious poems are wonderfully matched by illustrator PETER VISKA's zany illustrations. They team up again on My Brother Drinks Out of the Toilet and other poems and The Dog's Just Been Sick in the Honda and other poems.
British author Titchmarsh (Rosie) brings the art world alive in this engaging romantic drama. In 2007, James Jamie Ballantyne reconnects with childhood chum and flame, Artemis Missy King, who resurfaces in the showroom of Jamie s auction house in Bath to bid on a painting on behalf of her grandfather. The reunited couple discover that a set of paintings by Sir Alfred James Munnings, owned by Missy s grandfather (himself owner of an established fine art gallery), are fakes. Their investigation reveals a long thread of family secrets and the source of the feud between their two families, revelations that cause the couple to split up. Titchmarsh alternates between the present and the story of Jamie s grandfather, Harry Ballantyne, and Missy s grandmother, Eleanor King, who met as art students at Oxford. The effect is nostalgic and builds anticipation and curiosity in the history of the two families, including the story behind the lost love of their grandparents.
