When you have to retrieve a book from your child's bedroom in order to review it, then you know it's good. I actually already know this was a good book because I'd read it, said 'did you know...' and generally poked it under the nose of anyone near to me whilst waiting to board an aeroplane for a family holiday. I like words, I like silly words, and I like being silly with words. Thanks to this book I now know that I am a POTATO (Person over thirty acting twenty-one). I have pondered such RAQs (rarely asked questions) as 'Why is your bottom in your middle?' And that a man with a spear on his head is called Lance. This is a fantastic book that adults and children alike will love sharing. An absolute MUST for every school and public library.
