Anyway, it's a book I will treasure. It contains a load of tales, poems, drawings, songs and stories, some of which I already know. For example, 'Old Cups of Tea', and 'The Dirty Dinner'. ''OH! What's that on the dining-room table? Jim! Jim! Come here. What's that on the dining-room table?'' ''It's a big pile of dirt, Mammy.''
And so it goes on. 'The rent had not been paid for 31 years and the landlord was becoming restive.' A gem. I would write more, only I don't have time.
