Wow, this book is amazing. A breath of comedy and satire fresh air. The birth of Punch is a great story and learning how he roved across the world is wonderful fun. This book makes him come alive. If you have a taste for the unusual, Terry Pratchett or Jasper Fforde then this is for you.

The idea behind the book - a history of the character PUNCH is good - but the style is very annoying. I was also very disappointed in the quality of this electronic version. It contains as many typos as a free classic book - not good eneough for a commercial publication. Also I guess that several of the 'jokes' relate to the typeface and layout - these are missing from this edition. All in all not a very good buy.

What an amazing book! Anybody who has a sense of humour, should immediately get a copy and read it! From the start it offers unusual and very funny ideas. Fancy opening a book with an Epilogue.
Needless to say, it ends with a Prologue. In between the great variety of clever wordgames keeps you riveted from page to page. Not to mention the research that must have gone into this work.
Highly, highly recommended!

Don't be misled by Punch, this is a book for adults! If you ever witnessed Mr Punch at a seaside resort when you were a child and you've never forgotten the experience then read this book, it shows you how he grows from an idea into his wonderful self. We discover how he spreads throughout Europe by having puppet children. The voice of Punch is so alive and entertaining. A great fun read.

That's the funniest book I have read for a long time. The way I.M. Kidding plays with words, and even the headings of chapters, is amazing. On the side we learn quite a lot about history, in particular of course the making of one of the most endearing characters (who really is one of the "sons" of the live Pulcinello.) Brilliant! Almost impossible to put down!
