This new Gez Walsh offering is crammed full of the sort of poems Gez is famous for: you can almost smell the cheesy whiff of "Pete's Feet", taste the crunchy "Toenail Teacake", breathe in the evil stench from Bravefart's behind, and feel the pain as the fiery curry cooked by Ahmed's granny to defeat the aliens in "Vindaloo, the Alien-Slayer" hisses and roars its way from throat to bum!
As usual, in Gez's world, the kids have more idea than the adults, but are puzzled by the illogical acts of their parents, sisters and brothers.
With the usual hilarious results. Not to mention wonky trolleys, lumpy milk, bad teeth, and Freda the fat wood-fairy.
In common with his other books in the series, the collection ends with a single serious poem, this time about the effects of grief and the way in which the strong character of Grandma helps the child overcome it.
If you're looking for big, bold, in-your-face humour coupled with strange characters and stories, then Mum, the Dog's Drunk Again! is worth every penny and more!
