Filthy Creatures: things my mother never told me by David Williams is a must read because sometimes, you just need to laugh.
The humorous and slightly saucy collection of poems gives a funny insight into the character traits of creatures both familiar and loveable, as well as the unfamiliar.
But more than just laughs, each poem ends with a tongue in cheek moral that strikes a chord and teaches a lesson that makes you think.
Filthy creatures is better read out loud as I found out at the launch and will have you grinning at every paragraph.
Filthy Creatures, £9.99, is available from oort publications. £1 from the sale of each paperback is donated to ABF, the Soldiers’ Charity.
