Product Description

Review

"At its best, the book has a delightful tone of foppish grandeur, achieving without much fuss a kind of phenomenological intensity in entries such as "Walking Back Home Drunk" or "Poking the Fire". Remember, too, that most things are improved with "a cup of smouldering tea", on which note I must leave you, as the kettle has just boiled" (Guardian)

Book Description

The Cloudspotter's Guide meets The Dangerous Book for Boys in this charming celebration of the simple things in life
