Ladies of Letters Go Green by Lou Wakefield and Carole Hayman.
The ninth series of barking mad misadventures for those two elderly ladies behaving badly.
The caustic correspondence between Irene Spencer and Vera Small is always richly entertaining, and these latest letters are no exception. Catty and competitive as ever, the pensioner pen-pals find themselves in yet more trouble in this latest series.
The Ladies start to look beyond themselves at the future of the planet at large and soon become eco-enthusiasts: tying bricks to ballcocks, running cars on chip fat, and even emailing Al Gore to update him on the state of the local bottle bank.
