LoveReading View on When Jack Sued Jill

Witty, unusual, full of biting satire and very clever is the best way to describe this beautifully illustrated book of modern nursery rhymes.  From ASBOS to hunting, white van drivers to football hooligans, Blair to 'Old Osama', celeb culture to terrorism - all are scathingly given a wicked airing in one of the funniest un-PC and refreshing books this year.  It comes with the added bonus for the author reading some of the poems on CD.  I cannot recommend it highly enough.

When Jack Sued Jill Synopsis

When Jack Sued Jill  is the latest collection of original verse by maverick multimillionaire publisher Felix Dennis. Taking the innocence of nursery rhymes and turning them into something altogether darker, Dennis turns his piercing eye on the follies and absurdities of modern life.

From ASBOs to Osama Bin Laden, creationism to crack houses, Humpty Dumpty to Tony Blair, nothing and no one is spared. Even more shockingly, once you’ve read Dennis’s updating of Little Miss Muffet, you’ll never be able to think of her in the same way again.

Scathing and hilarious, imaginative and unpredictable, When Jack Sued Jill  is an essential collection of twisted nursery rhymes for the twenty-first century.
