More about this book...
This is an outrageous subversive horror/fantasy from Tom Baker - ex-monk, ex-sailor, and the ultimate Dr Who.
The hero is Robert Caligari - an evil 13-yr old - whose hatred for the human race spills into a truly terrible revenge. It's a short, gory, and tremendously funny story, illustrated throughout with b/w line drawings from David Roberts.
Comedian ARDAL O' HANLON said of it: "I thought it was grotesque, depraved, and above all very funny. It held throughout the troubling tone of, appropriately enough, a bacon slicing machine. I particularly appreciated the idea of the ex-xylophone player who now delivers meals-on-wheels playing his imaginary instrument in response to a mishap he's just witnessed. Lovely. And I'm still hanuted by the rather beautiful image of a horse leaping from a flyover on to a motorway."
ESQUIRE MAGAZINE: "Tom Baker's book will find favour with juveniles and grown-up children alike. It touches that great British nerve of revelling in the grotesque. [Tom Baker's] new book is ace."
