New charity shop find

On the way home from uni today I stopped in one of my favourite charity shops, there were only a few minutes left before it closed but I just wanted to look for some little stocking fillers for my family. Anyway, this interesting little fella caught my eye...

I like all the pages far too much to do anything to them! The poems are all by Spike Milligan with illustrations by W. Heath Robinson. I haven't decided whether to give it to my dad for Christmas or to keep it for myself...

I adore Spike Milligan, he is a legend, he was a legend even before he died.

What a terrific find! Like you, I'd struggle as to whether I'd gift it, or keep it...

I'd keep it, but I am a selfish brat and am currently struggling over which of my hair barrettes and pins to give to people because I really would rather keep them all. SO much for the season of giving, lol!
