Some people will call this a very clever picture book, but I'm not one of them. Open this book and it appears a very young child scribbled on the pages. Follow the text and you'll learn that that isn't the case, but I had trouble convincing a young reader that an adult rather than a child was responsible for these drawings.

Is there a storyline here? Not really. In fact, the story is that there is no story ... just some odd characters who are obviously not ready for prime time! You'll also find mug shots of the author. Why he feels a need to include himself is beyond me!

In an attempt to be funny (at least that is what I am assuming he was doing) the author writes, 'Look, if you're not happy, you can go and look for a story somewhere else / There are lots of other books, you know!'

Hmm, that's excellent advice. That is exactly what I did!
