Book Review

Would you "Adam and Eve it"! Supposedly starting out as a private language to fool coppers (bottle and stoppers) and their narks (Noah's arks), Cockney rhyming slang has always had vitality. This text offers hundreds of definitions. Publishers Michael O'Mara Books specialise in fun and silly books, and this is one of their better ones. Here's what they have to say: "Pages and pages of hundreds and hundreds of definitions, so take our ‘lump of ice’, empty out your ‘Davy Crocketts’ and cough up some ‘pie and mash’."
