The Best Children's Book Ever
on 5 January 2017
This is an absolutely wonderful children's book and I grant it the highest of all recommendations.
I read this along with the other wonderful tales from the same author, Philip Ridley, when I was once young. Keen to pass on the joy to the next generation I bought this book second-hand for my cousin's son.
Filled with wacky characters, exhilarating dialogue and climaxing excitement along with some pretty 'rad' doodles! Perfect for children and adults alike who seek a fun story to share.
When it comes to editions - I did opt for the second-hand one so that it would be the same as mine - the cover immediately bringing back all the memories of reading and re-reading in my childhood.
Do discover the other titles by this supremely talented author, many more adventures await :)
Very good egg
PS. I do believe this author has not released books recently but I'm pretty sure he has written a few plays that are/have been on show at Soho Theatre
