The bestselling collection from Britain's best-loved poet and entertainer, Pam Ayres - now with extra new poems for the paperback edition

Her work is popular with fans of all ages, and her wry observations on the peculiarities of modern life will raise a smile from even the most hardened cynic. This new collection is a must-have for Pam's many fans - and for anyone who enjoys beautifully crafted stories and poems to make you laugh and make you think.

Biographical Notes

It's over 30 years since Pam first appeared on the TV talent show 'Opportunity Knocks', and since then her comic poems have contributed enormously to the wider appeal today of all forms of poetry. Many of Pam's poems feature in anthologies used in schools around the world. She's been a regular on TV and Radio over the years - on BBC Radio 2 with her own series, The Comedy Quiz, Pam Ayres' Sunday Afternoon and Pam Ayres' Open Road, and on Radio 4 in Just A Minute, That Reminds Me, The Right Time, Wireless Wise, and her own recent Radio 4 series Ayres On The Air. She was awarded the MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours of 2004.
