Format: Hardcover
At this rate, Mr Gervais is in danger of being better remembered for his children's books than for his comedy shows.

This year's contribution to the world of Flanimals is presented as though it may be the last - the frontispiece says that this is now all that he knows about Flanimals, and the book is split into two pieces. The first piece is in the familiar style of great pictures and witty text as the phylum of Flanimal insects is covered. In a couple of places the adult in jokes are rather risqué though should be missed by the children.

The second portion details the war between the untold numbers of Bletchlings that hatch across the world and whose coming was foretold previously (as it would be). Without wanting to [SPOIL] too much, it all ends badly for the Flanimals, and the book ends by leaving nothing more to say...

Except of course for a 'maybe something new might have happened by next Christmas!'

The bonus this time round is another poster, this one recreating Jaws in the Flanimal style.

Congratulations (again) Ricky - another success!

My son loves this book and enjoys drawing the different flanimals so it keeps him occupied. I think its a bit daft but I guess I am out of touch

A massive Flanimals fan , my daughter 8 obviously had to have this one to complete her collection.
The bletchling itself is hideous and 'a bit scary' but she loved the book.
Being the sensitive type she did find the end very sad and it took her a little while to decide to return to the book for a second look because of this - but she did.
I personally don't like Gervais but these books are a big hit even with my 4 (now 5) year old who loves them read out to him. But then mine always seem to like the oddball books.
