George, Dont Do That ... by Joyce GrenfellTwo works by the inimitable Joyce Grenfell in one volume; the first George, Dont Do That ... is wonderfully funny while the second is not quite so, although it does contain some of this lovely ladys humour.
George is quite a character, and the author tells us in a most amusing foreword how we should address George and how we should talk to children generally. And there is a great story about how her father talked to a little child in a pram.
George is always doing the wrong thing and not paying attention, thus the title, particularly when performing, or supposedly performing a nativity play or being a flower. But he is mischievous rather than naughty and one cannot help but like him in these lovely short stories.
Stately as a Galleon are monologues written to perform before adults and have some amusing moments, none more so than the visit to the launderette, with which I can empathise from my earlier days!
