Now We Are Sixty and a Bit Summary

Now We Are Sixty and a Bit by Christopher Matthew

Barely had the first copies of Christopher Matthew's 'Now We Are Sixty' landed in the bookshops when people started to ask when he was going to write a sequel. To his surprise the temptation to try his hand at a few more poems (particularly based on originals he hadn't tackled before, such as the Emperor's Rhyme or Sneezles) proved, like age itself, irresistible. Once again they follow the rhymes and rhythms of the great Milne, to remind those who are getting on in years of the wit, wisdom and whimsy he conjured up for those who were very young.

Now We Are Sixty and a Bit Reviews

This affectionate tribute to Milne follows the familiar rhythms and rhyme schemes of the master -- The Oldie 20000401 Life continues to take its toll on the author, but the overall feeling remains one of ... cheerful resignation -- Knutsford Guardian 20000401 [This book] will certainly strike a chord and raise a laugh with those who are 60 (and a bit) -- Belgravia 20000401
