From the cover: “In 1996, Political Cartoonist of the Year Peter Brookes launched a series of cartoons in The Times newspaper on Saturdays called 'Nature Notes' — brilliantly executed drawings of both domestic MPs and international leaders as members of a weird and wonderful world. A menagerie with a vegetable patch, the world of 'Nature Notes' is a place where the great and the good can and do become the small and the furry: Boris Yeltsin as a Muscovy (lame) duck; Ian Paisley as an Orange-utan ('Devours all greenery'); and Baroness Thatcher as a rabid old bat ('Its venom is of European origin, and any bite can prove gravely injurious to grey-haired, bespectacled gentlemen'). Anything is possible — John Prescott can even become a Great Tit.”
