The Book of Not Entirely Useful Advice

A.F.Harrold

Bloomsbury

“If you’ve ever wondered what a sausage might be useful for, or how to not get eaten by tigers, or how to get a duck out of your soup, or the best place to not practice your juggling, or whether gravy makes a good perfume, or whether an octopus might make a good hat, or how to not get eaten by bears, or where to not stick a porcupine, or what to do with jelly, or how to stop your trousers from falling down, or how to not get eaten by crocodiles, or how to not be scared in bed when the house makes all sorts of odd noises in the middle of the night, or what to do with jelly (again), or whether to accept those manky old biscuits your granny’s found in the back of the cupboard, or how to tell the difference between an elephant and an evening at the theatre, or what silence sounds like, or how to tell the difference between blackbirds and bananas, or how to tell the difference between pencils and sausage rolls, or how to tell the difference between rocks, cakes and rock cakes… then, goodness me, this is the book for you!”

I couldn’t put it any better than that so i just took the words direct from AF Harrold himself, this is a collection of “mostly’ brand new poems accompanied by brilliant illustrations by Mini Grey.
