Review quote

"his opening talk, about his affinity with the gently ruminant three-toed sloth, was pure delight" -- Daily Telegraph Gillian Reynolds "all the time the lilting, dancing voice is alight with wonder and - let's call a spade a spade - love." -- Simon Barnes The Times "his seen-it-all air is like aural comfort food, and the asides are as good as ever." -- Elisabeth Mahoney The Guardian
