Normally I would regret buying a book that is basically just funny. A one time read, you might say. Wrong! I periodically pick this up and reread it and always find plenty to laugh at. I bought this and "Like I Give A Frock", and keep them by my chair for a pick me up when life (and my other books) get grim.. The illustrations are a super bonus. They are simply fabulous and worth buying the book for - even if you don't possess a sense of humor.
