By: Chris Addison; Adam Howling;
Quality: Like New
Genre: Comedy & Humor,
Description: Includes black and white illustrations throughout. These are dark days. The world is seething with imbeciles and poltroons. Everywhere the careless and thoughtless are charging about the place in hulking 4x4s, or inviting Channel 4 to come around rather than clean their own homes. So comedian Chris Addison has written CAUTIONARY TALES FOR GROWN-UPS - poems in the style of Hilaire Belloc or Struwelpeter, to illustrate the dangers of modern behaviour.The tales include: 'The Gloucestershire Horse Club', 'Who posed Naked for a Charity Calendar', 'Phillip, who talked only in Management Speak', 'Myfanwy', 'Who answered an Email from a Nigerian Bank Manage',and 'Fiona and Dave', who had a Wacky Wedding.Sparklingly wicked and cunningly illustrated, this is a hilarious Struwelpeter for the twenty-first century.
