Loads More Lies to Tell Small Kids (Hodder & Stoughton)


I suppose anyone who has worked closely with Armando Iannucci, Dylan Moran and Dom Joly must have a naturally devilish streak in them. But only the most brutally callous would imagine a bloodbath involving the Tweenies, have a drunk mum force her little girl to search for Narnia in the bedroom for a bit longer and envisage Scooby’s best pal Shaggy as a casualty of the Vietnam War.

From the man who brought you the bleakly hysterical Bunny Suicides comes the sparkling sequel to his Great Lies to Tell Small Kids which is jam-packed with crazy ideas and might make you feel like it’s The Far Side rewritten by Chris Morris. If you want to know exactly what God looks like, what really happens to your luggage when you get on the plane and where the world’s tallest dwarf hails from, have a dip. But just keep it all to yourself.
