Children (and doubtless many adults) will love this brilliantly illustrated book, and all the detail so lovingly described within - it is funny, rude, tender, thoughtful and even moving. I cannot recommend it enough.
The perfect antidote to our over-sanitised lives.
The book is filled with visual and literary gags, e.g. hidden on Mildrew's bathroom shelf there's 'FemStench' perfume which is real Eau de Toilete (toilet water), plus you finally find out what Great Aunt Ada Doom of Cold Comfort Farm really saw in the woodshed as a child (and yes it was something nasty). This book would be of interest to any kid over 7, boys might go for it at an earlier age than girls - although be warned it's not suitable for sensitive parents. It's also ideal for well read teenagers and young adults, who will appreciate the sophisticated humour more. So if you ever wondered what makes the bogeyman hiding under your bed tick, get this superbly illustrated and funny book.
And then I must just add that unlike a good many (many good?) people, I actually wrote to Raymond Briggs in the winter of 1980, to congratulate him on 'Fungus', and was lucky enough to receive a 'Christmas' card from him in response, bearing the titular Bogeyman athwart its frontage and containing a very kind message, which card I still have! Possibly the highlight of an otherwise moribund existence, so thank you, Mr Briggs! I'll be buying 'When the Wind Blows' (another boyhood favourite) next.
