The Wrong End of the Dog Jacket

Philip Ardagh

ISBN 0099433311

Publisher: Faber Childrens

The Wrong End of the Dog Jacket

The Wrong End of the Dog JacketPhilip ‘Beardy’ Ardagh has a way with words; or, quite possibly, they have a way with him. In either case, the results are a delight. Along the same lines as the works of Lear and Milligan – but in no way derivative – Ardagh’s prose is a glorious, gleeful tumble of convincing silliness that never drops the pace or tries too hard (what else would a famous film star be called, but ‘Tawdry Hipbone’?) This is the fourth book of ‘Grubtown Tales’, and like the others, it practically fizzes with unforced energy, enthusiasm and, yes, innocence. Absurdly brilliant – your inner child will love it as much as the ones your outer adult is supposed to be teaching.
