When Christopher Matthew was six, the poems of Milne always reassured him that other children were as naughty as he was, so on reaching sixty he decided that he should adapt Now We Are Six for an older audience.

Now We Are Sixty is often hilarious, sometimes rueful and always thought-provoking. Some verses are about realising we are not as young as we thought, while some are about the more disconcerting problems of modern life; mobile telephones on trains, anti-social behaviour, traffic jams and the internet.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This affectionate tribute to Milne follows the familiar rhythms and rhyme schemes of the master * The Oldie *
Matthews retains the rhythms of the originals while neatly and wittily updating them to fit the modern world ... aided and abetted by David Eccles' faithfully rendered illustrations. * Glasgow Herald *
humorous pastiches ... a charming book * Glasgow Herald *
