Isengnya Chris Riddell membuat ilustrasi bagi buku yang tak pernah ditulis. I nearly wet my pants from laughing at this book, the first time I read it. Twisting classic (or very popular) book titles, Chris Riddell includes illustrations that perfectly capture the inanity of the spoofs.

May 09, 2015 Ro Long rated it it was amazing.

This book is flat-out funny, and often irreverent. Literature teachers might get a kick out of assigning classes to figure out the title spoofs, as should the students (theoretically)
