The Lovereading4Kids comment

This brand new series from Jim Smith, creator of the one and only Barry Loser, scores top marks for nutty – and non-stop – surreal humour, and for its fabulous black and white illustrations. Our hero is Brian Lampost, ordinary boy who through a freak accident involving a wheelie bin, a TV and a lightning storm, is zapped into the future as a sort of super-hero (he’s half boy, half rat, half TV) there to do battle with robot grannys amongst other adventures. Don’t whatever you do make this bedtime reading – it will provoke that uncontrollable hysterical giggling in kids that terrifies all adults, but that proviso aside, it’s an absolute winner. ~ Andrea Reece

Join Future Ratboy and Not Bird on their first adventure to find out!
