John managed what I wanted to be - Luton's most famous poet! John Hegley's whimsical style is well-known, and there's a lot of short, endearing stuff here - the silly 'Blackburn And Preston', the grim humour of 'Grandad's Glasses', the dark 'Looking After Your Dog', the poignant poems, 'Dreaming My Dad' and 'The Death Of A Dog'.

John may well be crackers, but it's a nice kind of crackers. If he was a poetry teacher, poetry would be the new football!
