Barry's Book Corner

This month, Barry Baitumen has been in a very philosophical frame of mind. Unsure of his roots, where he came from - and indeed where he is going - he has been in heavily contemplative mood, reaching deep into himself as well as the Book Corner library.

His pick of the bunch this time around is "Darwin" by Adrian Desmond & James Moore - which is suitably located outdoors, surrounded by nature (in the form of the WOP veggie patch):

Barry was 'unavailable for comment' when we tried to press him for a few words. All he could say as he fled across the car park was "Why?! Why?! I just don't know what to make of it all!".

Wise words indeed, Barry - and we look forward to your next glowing recommendation.

Excellent book choice this month Barry! I have the Ladybird version of this book, and it is still a cracking read. Especially the bit where Charles 'Chuck' Darwin expains his theory that bananas evolved from the flying lobster. Makes perfect sense and is great bedtime reading!

Personally, I can't wait for the film of the book - word is that David Bellamy is set to play the lead roll.

I can just see it now - "Here in the undergrowth, peculiar goings on..." And I wonder whether Michaela Strachan will make a cameo appearance?

Ooh, Michaela Strachan! She made The Really Really Wild Show, Really Really...nice.
Maybe it might be next summer's blockbuster movie; 'Darwin - The Motion Picture'. With an A-list of starts, special effects, it's bound to win the Golden Hammer Awards!

Ooh, do you think it will star the fantastic Terry Nutkin?!?! He was great. And has a highly amusing name too!! I reckons he'd win best actor at the Golden Hammer Awards!
