How many fucking books are there? I had to read "That's not my truck" last week. "That's not my truck. It's sides are to ridgey". WTF! £5.99 for 5 pictures of things with fun fur or something on them? They're taking the piss! "That's not my hamster". Seriously! Where's the plot?!

Coming soon:

That's not my poo. It's sides are too glittery.
That's not my poo. It's top is too floaty.
That's my poo. It's tail end is so sweetcorny!

£5.99. angry

Toadinthehole that's fantastic. I must add that the next time I have to read that's not my sodding hamster.

I used to work with Fiona! Many moons ago. She was (/is) extremely sensible. If it helps, I actually doubt she's a squillionaire as people working there wrote books while working for a salary, rather than royalties - though they may have come to some kind of agreement I suppose.

She was sensible. She's probably gone totally off the rails now and spends all her time in a dress made of money, looking for things that aren't other things and things that are things but are similar to the things which were not things.

Anyway, this thread has made the roundup this week so everybody look busy.

What really bugged me about those books (aside from endless repetitions of the same stuff) was the Monkey Mistake! Somewhere towards the end .. "That's not my monkey" - no, because it's an orangutan. Which is an ape. Really think whoever designed and checked that one got it badly wrong.

Aside from that I love Usborne books smile
