He is a brilliant writer,he makes me laugh out loud as well. Take a look at some of his other books like notes from a big island which is all about America and Americans. So observational.!!!

So, without spoilers, does he find anyone over here

1)laughing with him at his Sesame Show take on the letter Z(ee),
2)correcting his Quayle spelling of root vegetables, or
3)does he grow up quickly ?

The best facial is a daily facial.

That would be the Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid.


Thunderpants was a film that had Stephen Fry stand in for a real actor owing to the script.
