I would suggest getting a copy of Lost in La Mancha. It was originally going to be a "making of" documentary about Don Quixote. Instead it became the "unmaking of".

Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book is absolutely hilarious- I have it at home. And the Goblin one is quite nice as well. Very cool drawings and such. I've had them for quite a while now, since before I was a huge Python fan and didn't realize that Terry Jones had written them until just a bit ago! How splendid. He's s creative.

yeah! I love it too! I remember seeing it in a National Trust shop YEARS ago (i'm talking at least 10) and pestering dad for it and I wasn't allowed to have it; and every time I went to a National Trust shop after that, I'd head straight for the kiddies book section! ( I still do... only now i call it 'eyeing up the competition' :oops: ) I only found out it was Jonesy about a month ago and was like OMG!
Also; one of me favourite poems (again when i was about 10) was 'Horace' and again, about a month ago, i found out it was Jonesy! and again i was like 'OH MY GOD!!!!' - just goes to show i've always loved him; even when i had no idea who he was!!! :wink:

'Much to his mum and dad's dismay, Horace ate himself one day
He didn't stop to say his grace; he just sat down and ate his face'
- Brilliant!
