Shaggy Dog Stories - 28th Jun 2016

Shaggy Dog and Other Surrealist Stories
told by John Waller, illustrated by Frank Wilson

This is a very silly book indeed: a great selection of really absurd tales; some preposterous animal yarns; plenty of ridiculous stories about nothing much; and frivolous anecdotes galore.  Here's a taster:

Cocktail hour at the officers' mess.  
"Colonel, sorry to hear you've buried your wife."
"Had to, old boy.  Dead, you know."

My personal favourite is probably The Three Tortoises.  Something about it just appeals to me. 

The illustrations are lovely, well worth a look.
