A Likely Tale, Lad – Mike Pannett
For a young lad like Mike Pannett, growing up in the North Yorkshire countryside in the late 1960s and early ‘70s was a dream come true.
The sun always seemed to be shining, and summer holidays lasted forever. They really were the good old days. Given a bottle of pop and a jam sandwich, a lad could wander as far as his bike would take him, and the countryside was one big adventure playground peopled by larger-than-life characters and endless opportunities for laughs and larks.
He’s a likely lad, is Mike, and these are his likely tales.
“Richly nostalgic and a delightful evocation of rural England in the Seventies, it will charm anyone who grew up at that time.” Daily Mail
