About this book
A complete collection of the classic "Guardian" strips that made Simmonds famous, which ran from the 1970s to the 1980s. From the author and illustrator of "Gemma Bovary" and "Tamara Drewe".
In May 1977 the author, an unknown young illustrator, started drawing a weekly comic strip for the "Guardian". It began as a silly parody of girls' adventure stories, making satirical comments about contemporary life. The strip was latterly untitled and usually known just as "Posy". It ran until the late 1980s. This title collects these strips.
