Elephants, lions, tigers, monkeys, giraffes, penguins,… Read more »

I think the song might actually be a cover, but it goes ‘But now I know, Laura, summer is a lonely place. Oh, Laura, I wish I could see your face.’ You really wouldn’t think there would be much of a story behind having such an ordinary name as ‘Laura’ would you? 2. Some of my earliest works of fiction was a story about talking rabbits and a fantasy tale called ‘The Tewkesbury Tales’.
