Who is on the plum tree?
Congratulations Valerie Turner! We have just published your first book: Johnny Depp Came To My Party.
This collection is a warm and very down-to-earth collection of ditties by a woman of a certain age. Valerie laughs in the face of her disability and old age, commenting on the ordinary moments that make the every-day unique. Her cat’s antics, daughter’s shopping habits, day trips, observations on frogs, sparrows, the fairy on the Christmas tree and even a neighbour delighting people with his pickles, are told in sing-song rhyme with a twist in perspective and humour that only a woman from the great British midlands could come up with! This is not London humour. It is lived-a-lot, suffered-a-lot humour that is not afraid to subtly laugh at itself and put the high-falutin firmly back in its place.
