Not only do we have a wide choice of used books available, we'll also send your next read to you free of charge. Am not sure about all the negative things said about this seller by other people,,, because my experience was completely different, totally positive. Comedian and musician Bill Bailey turns his attention to the (mostly) common birds of the UK, with comic asides and sketches that suggest that he should stick to his day job, even if they're charmingly rendered.It didn’t have me laughing out loud but it made me smile every time I opened the kindle app on my iPad and found it there waiting for me. There is not a vast amount of prose in the book, but what there is, is written with Bailey’s impish humour, amusing anecdotes and razor sharp wit.

A beautifully and originally designed hardback, it will delight Bailey's fans as well as those who like a bit of armchair escapism. The design of the book makes it feel that you are reading a notebook full of jottings and his own charming sketches. His earliest memories are of family outings with parents, grandparents and cousins, ticking the birds off in his little Observer's Book of Birds. Alongside music and stand-up, one of Bailey's favourite pastimes is birdwatching, which he has been doing since he was a child in the West Country. Most people know Bill Bailey for his amazing performances where he expertly mixes comedy and music with a large dollop of zaniness, or his appearances on various panel games.Bill Bailey's Remarkable Guide To British Birds is described by publishers Quercus as "a collection of observations and thoughts about birds which incorporates Bailey's knowledge, insight and enthusiasm, as well as plenty of wry wit".
