Tom Baker - Confirmed Weird
I picked this up in Singapore a couple of months ago but have taken the chance of being sofa-bound to read it. OK - it's semi-obviously a kids book but I'm a huge Tom Baker fan and thought it worth a read and, it was.
It would be easy to imagine that the book came from an inspired thought whilst the author was down the pub and upon returning that the whole thing was poured onto the page in a single, mad sitting. I know nothing to compare it to, although I don't make a habit of reading kids books. The sort of people that read kids books (e.g. Harry Potter) but feel the burden of shame for doing so and wish to pay top dollar for 'adult covers' on the books will be relieved at the discreet cover.
