WHEN I WERE A MEERKAT


WHEN I WERE A MEERKAT

ANDREW DAVIES    Book Number: 85092    Product format: Hardback

Cheeky black and white archive photos of meerkats growing up in impoverished circumstances. 'Aye lad! Get on yer 'Ovis bicycle down that cobbled lane, an I'll take no nonsense from yer bad behaviour.' Instead of speaking to a little lad in the 1950s, replace with cute meerkat, suitably dressed and blending into these nostalgic sepia and mono photographs of schoolchildren and youngsters playing accordion, on the seafront, in a charabanc on an outing, playing conkers and looking tough in the playground. Here's dad home from work, having a nice sit down, a cuppa and a smoke. 'And if he were feeling fancy, a tasty bit of scorpion pie. Even if it were only dried scorpions, not live ones.' Sitting with Humpty Dumpty on the wall, arm in arm: 'You soon learned not to trust strangers. Fair do's, Humpty Dumpty did look a bit of a barmpot, but you didn't realise he had a death wish.' 128 absolutely delightful pages, one photograph on every other page with one 'handwritten' daft mock-Yorkshire caption alongside to have you singing in the rain, remembering schooldays or digging for black gold. 'Pit for pittance me dad used to say. He worked at Mill.' 128pp.
