Small Talk

Small Talk


Children on love:'My sister kisses her boyfriend all the time, it's very nasty to watch' James (6)on marriage:'When you marry a girl you have to give her a best man' Richard (7)on pets:'My dog wants to give all dogs he meets babies. He's a terrible responsibility' Albert (7)and on war and peace:'My mummy and daddy like peace. They don't often get it'David (7)Truth is always stranger than fiction, and children have the disarming gift of telling it like it is. This anthology of children's sayings, gathered together by Nanette Newman, shows you life from a little person's perspective. Sometimes funny, sometimes moving, sometimes outrageous, often perceptive, and always with an innocence that is nice to remember, this is a touchingly funny book that you will return to time and time again.
