              Charles II was thirty when he crossed the Channel in fine May weather in 1660. His Restoration was greeted with maypoles and bonfires, like spring after long years of Cromwell's rule. But there was no going back, no way he could 'restore' the old. This title presents a portrait o...f Charles II, exploring his elusive nature.

              Where do these human-like animals and birds and these odd adventures - some gentle, some violent, some musical, some wild - come from? In this book the author's many drawings that accompany his verse are almost hyper-real, as if he wants to free the creatures from the page. It de...pended on patrons and moved in establishment circles.
