Spike Milligan. Spike Milligan — was a famous British comedian, poet, writer and musician. His wild imagination and madcap humour had a timeless appeal that continues to delight audiences of all ages to this day.
Spike Terence Alan was born to British parents in India, where his father, an army captain, was stationed in Poona Pune. During his time in the army he joined the Bill Hall Trio and performed for the troops. He has written several story books and poetry for children. His novels include Puckoon, and he produced seven volumes of war memoirs.
Badjelly the Witch, which Spike wrote for his daughter Jane, was first published in The larger illustrations are also brilliant, including the classic portrait of Fluffybum the cat, drawn of course from his best side: behind. In the story itself, the language is constantly surprising and charmingly punctuated: They came to a big big mountain, but it had a big white beard on.
Recommended for ages They all love the characters especially Fluffy Bum the cat. I have read this to my own children numerous times and now to my grandchildren. Glorious nonsense!! I never got sick of hearing it.
My family were quite reserved types, but not long into the story we were all in stitches. A delightful tale for all ages. Loved it then and love it now. Recommend to all. Thanks Spike! It's Spike Milligan, need I say more. Our Lists. Buy from…. View all online retailers Find local retailers.
