Category: Humour and Satire
Description: Have you ever wondered what kind of questions history's greatest figures would type into search engines if they'd existed during their time? This lively and hilarious book looks at the kind of things Charles Dickens would research while writing his latest novel ('things urchins say'), how Henry VIII would look up relationship advice ('breaking bad news to women from Cleeves') and Karl Marx would build up his knowledge ('cheating at Monopoly').

You can't fail to laugh out loud.

Adrian Mole: The Collected Poems


Category: Humour and Satire
Description: Mole Press - a brand new imprint of Penguin Books - is proud to announce the first publication of The Collected Poems of Adrian Mole to mark the author's 50 TH birthday. Featuring poems scattered over nearly thirty years of writing and salvaged from the diaries 'authored' by one Sue Townsend, this slim volume features more than thirty pieces of Adrian's unique art. From his timeless first documented poem - The Tap - via classic odes to his muse, first and only true love Pandora ( I adore ya), we follow Adrian's life in verse form. We not only witness his burgeoning political anger in works like Mrs Thatcher ( Do you weep, Mrs Thatcher, do you weep?) but also see in later poems his merciless examination of the hollow shell of masculinity as well as documenting his declining libido in tragic pieces like To My Organ. For the first time in a single volume, these are the collected poems of misunderstood intellectual and tortured poet Adrian Mole. ' It's really, really, really funny' David Walliams ' Wonderfully funny and sharp as knives' Sunday Times ' One of the great comic creations' Daily Mirror ' The funniest person in the world' Caitlin Moran ' I ruthlessly exploited Adrian. But he can't afford to sue me' Sue Townsend

My Dining Hell


Category: Humour and Satire
Description: I have been a restaurant critic for over a decade, written reviews of well over 700 establishments, and if there is one thing I have learnt it is that people like reviews of bad restaurants. No, scratch that. They adore them, feast upon them like starving vultures who have spotted fly-blown carrion out in the bush. They claim otherwise, of course. Readers like to present themselves as private arbiters of taste; as people interested in the good stuff. I'm sure they are. I'm sure they really do care whether the steak was served au point as requested or whether the souffle had achieved a certain ineffable lightness. And yet, when I compare dinner to bodily fluids, the room to an S & M chamber in Neasden (only without the glamour or class), and the bill to an act of grand larceny, why, then the baying crowd is truly happy. Don't believe me? Then why, presented with the chance to buy this ebook filled with accounts of twenty restaurants - their chefs, their owners, their poor benighted front of house staff - getting a complete stiffing courtesy of the sort of vitriolic bloody-curdling review which would make the victims call for their mummies, did you seize it with both hands?

I-spy For Grown-ups


Category: Humour and Satire
Description: From Sam Jordison, author of the bestselling Crap Towns series, comes I- SPY for Grown-ups. The I- SPY concept is very simple: it's like the ' I spy with my little eye' game, only instead of all the tedious stuff about 'something beginning with', there are pictures and descriptions and genuine opportunities to use your sleuthing skills to discover interesting things. This can be alarming - but when turned into a sport, it's also fun. The United Kingdom of Wales, England, Scotland and Northern Ireland isn't very united anymore. Great Britain isn't very great. Or so say the wrong-headed doubters who want to talk us down! But where else can you see Morris Dancers, men in kilts, weirdly neat gardens and aggressively jovial village fetes? Nowhere else. And this guide helps you add to these great joys by awarding you points for seeing them. Isn't that the pip?

Category: Humour and Satire
Description: Prince Philip - or to give him his proper due, His Royal Highness the Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Earl of Merioneth and Baron Greenwich, KG ( Knight of the Garter), KT ( Knight of the Thistle), OM ( Order of Merit), GBE ( Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the British Empire), AK ( Knight of the Order of Australia), QSO ( Companion of The Queen's Service Order), PC ( Privy Counsellor) - is a gentleman and a senior Royal of such standing, it's only fitting that a book celebrate the great wisdom he has accrued in his 93 magnificent years on earth. A tireless public servant to the Commonwealth, who can forget such pearlers as If it has four legs and it is not a chair, if it has got two wings and it flies but is not an aeroplane and if it swims and it is not a submarine, the Cantonese will eat it as said to a World Wildlife Fund meeting in 1986? Or, observing to a wheelchair-bound Susan Edwards alongside her guide dog in 2002, Do you know they have eating dogs for the anorexic now?. Of course, Australians fondly remember his deep and abiding interest in the country. We will always remember his asking Do you still throw spears at each other? to Indigenous leader William Brin in 2002? Or when offered a koala to stroke Oh no, I might catch some ghastly disease? But perhaps Prince Philip best summed up his illustratrious career when commenting to Jeremy Paxman that Any bloody fool can lay a wreath at the thingamy.
