Book Description

1 Oct 2007
Oh dear. It seems that our furry friends have been afflicted with a bad case of the swearing tic (not the wriggly kind you remove from your dog's back). This work combines comical and cute animal photos with inappropriate captions.

More About the Author

A Surrey-based author, by day I work in a marketing agency but by night (and on weekends and religious holidays) I write, having had 49 humour and trivia books published to date, most with my co-author Mike Lepine.
I've written for the Great & The Good including Jeremy Beadle, Julian Clary, Chris Tarrant, Ade Edmondson, Des Lynam and Roy Chubby Brown.
TV projects have included writing for Joe Pasquale, Hale & Pace, Brian Conley and even Noel Edmonds (a dark period in my life of which I am deeply ashamed).
Projects in search of placement include two novels: a crime thriller Dead Beat and a comedy, Dick Longg Saves The World! (soon to be eBooks) and two completed full-length film scripts, Kakia Vice and School of The Living Dead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uncontrollable 29 Sep 2007
I have to confess that I have only read a fraction of this book. I saw it, or rather was attracted by the cover (a hamster saying 'bo11ocks) and decide to dip into it. The result was me completely losing it in terms of laughing - I had to put it back on the shelf. I can imagine not many people would find this funny, most may find it school boy / childish etc but I am sorry I found it to be the most amusing thing I have seen for years - I have a tear in my eye at the memory of Waterstones in Southampton this afternoon.

If you have a black/rude/schoolboy sense of humour then this is for you.

I am still laughing now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Strangely hilarious 9 Oct 2007
The premise to this book is simple enough: take some sickeningly adorable animal pictures, add in some speech bubbles containing incredibly rude statements, and you have 'Pets with Tourettes'. And it works!

I giggled madly as I flipped from page to page, faced with the sage thoughts of animals ranging from a tortoise to goat, cat to cockerel. I think it's the combination of innocent cuteness with such shockingly foul language that is the key to this books success.

5.0 out of 5 stars laugh out loud 10 Nov 2007
i haven't laughed so much in a long while. what was slightly embarassing was being in the middle of the local waterstones at the time with people wondering what on earth i was doing. also a bit unsure as it was on a shelf where children could see it. definitely worth buying.

I have tourettes syndrome. Like 90% - yes 90% - of people with tourettes, I do not swear. Coprolalia (involuntary swearing) is a feature of tourettes that only 10% of tourettes sufferers have. As a sufferer I get this kind of abuse every day. Can you imagine what's it's like to be walking down the street twitching, hopping and yelping? Can you imagine the type of stares I get, and the comments people shout at me? Then people think it is "funny" to make fun of people like us. I am fed up to the back teeth of this ignorant rubbish that people like me with tourettes have to suffer.

If you were to make fun of a person with Down's Syndrome or autism or someone in a wheelchair you would be branded as a bad person. So why do people feel they have a free reign to make fun of people with tourettes? TOURETTES IS NOT A JOKE. And it's NOT about swearing. If I could give this book zero stars I would.

My child can not believe there are books out there making fun of his disability. What's next 'Pets in Wheelchairs'?

I may well be a mature 35 year old professional, and this may have been a gift for my equally mature girlfriend, but as soon as it was opened, every page made us both snigger. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Rude book, but funny
A christmas laugh for those who are not too fussy about naughty words. The pictures are great and the fact that a fluffy bunny or a cute bird can have a mouth like sewer is funny. Read more
