It’s really quite a big one


The Farmer and the Cock.

by Phyllis Groom

London, Lutterworth, 1969.

Actually, when you really come to look, it’s enormous!

It wakes him up every morning, according to the blurb. And he thinks about it all the time.

It’s from Lutterworth, so you just know there’ll be a Moral or a Message in there somewhere.
