Admirers of limerick verse/

I fancy can do a lot worse/

Than pick up online/

A volume of mine/

Befitting a moderate purse.///

Still available, I hope, in all good bookshops (and some crap ones I guess).  It can also be ordered from any of the following. If you feel moved to leave a review somewhere that would be great.

The idea came out of the news limericks I was doing, but the content is almost all new – a couple at the end are reworkings of 2011/2012 Twitmericks. Each accompanied by informative humorous text and some with illustrations. the perfect gift for the limerickophile in your life. Or yourself.

Mick Twister has written a book/

On Amazon, go take a look/

There Was an Old Geezer/

(the title) called Caesar/

So get it by hook or by crook.///

    Dear Mick, as a collector of limerick books (with over 1300 in my library dating from as early as 1820) I couldn’t let my scan-through of the Geezer called Caeser pass without saying how refreshing it is to have seen a new publication of really high quality. So many fall short of the mark!

    Best wishes,

    Doug

      Thanks Doug, Your comment is much appreciated. Fascinating to hear you’ve collected so many limerick books. Are they mostly based on sexual humour or Lear-style nonsense – or is there a reasonable track record of somewhere-in-between?

    Have recently finished the book, it was a Christmas present (twice). Much as I love a limerick I like to ration my daily allowance to properly enjoy them. I started tweeting a daily limerick last autumn thinking I was being wholly unique, delighted to find through your links this is not the case and loving your daily news Limerick. Thank you so much for following back.
