'Will make everybody laugh' DOLLY ALDERTON ON THE HIGH LOW

Enjoy this hilarious collection of over 200 haikus that sum up the complex, confusing and often compounding character of the British people.

The Sellotape end
Unlocatable it seems
Christmas is cancelled

How many gin tins
Is decreed appropriate
For this train journey?

The sound of a splash
My Hobnob falls to pieces
My tea is sullied

Every houseplant
Suffers a slow painful death
I am a monster

You're at the seaside
A seagull eyes your Magnum
You won't win that fight

The first ten paperback Penguin books appeared in 1935 costing 6d each (the price of a packet of cigarettes). Since then the Penguin list has developed enormously, but still aims to bring the best writing to the widest possible audience. Penguin Paperbacks now range from Booker Prize-winning contemporary authors, to mass market bestsellers, with successful history, biography and general non-fiction as well.
