5.0 out of 5 stars Life Before World’s End 16 Jun 2013
By WilderSoul –
What isn’t in this book?
Well, I can tell you a little of what is!
Stories intermixed with a haiku here or there, a tonne of fun FridayFacts, nonsense poetry, a bit of Skat music! Short autobiographical pieces, stand-up comedy you can read sitting down, some excellent accents, aliens, twitterings, the occasional quirky facebook status update, rhymes and Elton John song parodies, well at least one!
There is so much packed in here, it has taken more than one session to read it. Although this is a more serious book than Space Here, and intended for a more mature audience, it is still funny throughout, and I will be reading it over again.
One of my favourites in the book is The Never Ending Well, about being capable of giving love.
For Kurt and To All touches my heart as a parent.
And I liked very much the advice that kicks off the book at the very start: You are who you are, not what others want you to be.
I highly recommend digging into Life Before World’s End. 🙂

5.0 out of 5 stars Escapism at its best! 11 Mar 2012
By Spike E. Edjog
Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified PurchaseNeed a break from the stresses of the nine-to-five? Escape into the wonderfully unique world of Carrot-Phwack!
Probably the strangest, looniest collection I’ve seen, but Mr Singleton certainly isn’t one for worrying about sticking to the norm.
Not overly long either. Just enough to keep your attention.
Buy it now. I challenge you not to giggle.
5.0 out of 5 stars I Love this Nonsense! 16 Jun 2013
By WilderSoul – Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Carrot-Phwack says it all. This book is Nonsense! And that’s why I love it. Night on Still Island is stuck in my mind with its rhythm and rhymes, and the Misunderstood Fly is hilarious and yet has a touch of humanity.
I can imagine reading this book over and over to youngsters. (Mine have unfortunately grown, so I share these poems with my mother! We have a great many laughs!)
Reminiscent of Pam Ayres whose poetry I love (Pam Ayres: The Works: The Classic Collection), Spike Milligan’s humour such as in Bad Jelly the Witch (Badjelly the Witch, or on audio: Bad Jelly The Witch), and Father Fox’s Pennyrhymes by Clyde Watson. (I still have my copy from when I was about 6 years old, and can recite them by heart.) Space Here by Carrot-Phwack Singleton is also one to read over and over again. Carrot-Phwack is one of my very favourite writers.
I’ve read this one: Space Here by Carrot-phwack Singleton
And this one: Life Before World’s End which I will review next, by C.p. Singleton
And have just got a copy of this one to read next: The Treacle Rush, by C.p. Singleton
Carrot P- that is, CpSingleton, is an author who is going places. A man of wide-ranging genres, and an engaging writing style, with plenty of heart. Thoroughly recommend!
