              This selection of poems covers the period 1972 to 2002. This beautifully elegant volume excludes the cartoon element, focusing on Leunig's brilliant texts, with all their absurdity, hilarity, poignancy and joyfulness. Michael Leunig pokes fun at human folly and pretentiousness, d...eplores the idiocy of war, and revels in the redeeming power of love.

              There are few aspects of human existence to which Leunig has not turned his renaissance mind, ranging from the sublime to the seemingly ridiculous. In even the smallest things, he sees the larger key. No matter how serious or confronting the topic, he finds the funny side. The up...lifting side. The side you didn't even realise was there.
