The Book of How

Once upon a time there was a girl who didn’t know how to draw a picture. Her pencil would only write, but it refused to draw a picture. Words, words, words flowed from her pencil. ‘I don’t want more words,’ she cried. But words, words, words again. Words making sentences, clauses, santa-clauses, sub-clauses, nouns and never would she split an infinitive, but no pictures. Then she wrote: I want a camera. 

A quirky, nonsensical collection of tiny, exquisitely illustrated stories offering an absurd solution to everyday tasks. A manual for the inept; for childlike adults and grown-up children. The Book of How is available to buy from Amazon here and from the Book Depository here

Death by Petty Grievance 

 

More nonsense, short illustrated rants. Please forgive me, I wrote it in a lockdown. At the same time, don't start me. 

Beautifully made by Badly Made Books, printed on recycled paper. Contact me for a copy.
