Overview

On this occasion he turns his attention to the subject of music and applies his very special talents to the many aspects of this topic in a totally unexpected and entertaining way. Once again the author delights in knocking convention off its pedestal or tilting at the commonplace with a clever and literal use of language linked to his superbly executed drawings. Gifted with a fine sense of fun and a rich imagination, Simon Drew enjoys playing around with words to achieve outrageous results. With its delightful and highly original collection of verbal and visual puns, this eagerly awaited title will both amuse and stretch the imagination. Everybody and everything is fair game in this musical pot-pourri, from the 'Bantam of the Opera' to 'Zadok: The Piste'.
