The world of Spiky, Spunky, My Pet Monkey is one of smiles and shadows, giggles and grunge, where nothing stays dead for long and most things explode. It's a brand new collection of creepy rhyming stuff that makes you want to laugh and scream, and climb the curtains, all at the same time. Nearly all the rhymes have nasty stings in the tail. Some of them leave you gasping. Others leave you rolling around on the floor, begging for new pants. From the author of Sister Madge's Book of Nuns and Tumble Turn, this is vintage gallows humour for all ages, but mainly The Middle Ages.
