This is a fabulous collection of Spike Milligan’s poems and stories along with his original illustrations. Brilliant for adults and children alike this is a must for those who already know and love Spike Milligan as well as those who have yet to discover him. Funny, strange and brilliant.

Synopsis

The Magical World of Milligan by Spike Milligan

The Magical World of Milligan is a sparkly new children's compendium that gathers together a grand selection of Milligan favourites, including such delightful poems and stories as 'On the Ning Nang Nong', 'The Terrible Monster Jelly' and lots of Twits. Full colour and complete with Milligan's drawings and sketches, The Magical World also includes poems from Silly Verse for Kids to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of its publication in 1959. This wonderful new book will appeal to the legion of Milligan fans and open the door to new ones, young and old alike.
