The Funniest Stuff - The Funniest Stuff contains over fifty funny poems with equally amusing illustrations created by Colin West. They cover an array of different subjects in a range of various verse forms, strong in rhyme and wordplay. There are crazy creatures like the Snoope and the Lolloping Lollop. There are eccentric characters like Uncle Norman, a traffic warden who likes to keep on his uniform, (even in bed), and Aunt Priscilla, who wrestles a wild gorilla. There are insights into the poet's world, where Colin eschews personal questions in `Don't Ask Me About Myself', and gives vent to his feelings about airy-fairy writers in `O How I Hate the Poet!' Black humour is in evidence in short pieces, such as the nature-loving Henrietta and the longer rollicking ballad, Fritz, who liked to frolic in the foothills but whose dreams were sadly crushed. There is even a pastiche of the early Victorian cautionary tale in `Belated Bertie', about a boy who liked to play practical jokes. There is pure nonsense in `Under My Uncle's Umbrella' and a nod to concrete poetry in `I Used To Climb Up Lamp-posts, Sir'. The Funniest Stuff is brimming with humour, wit and charm and is sure to find your funny-bone and give it a good tickle! It will appeal to children aged 8-12.
