Shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2013 This collection of comic strips does exactly what it says on the tin: a boy called Steve wakes up one day to discover he has a giant fish for a head! Side-splittingly funny with plenty of slapstick of all varieties.

Synopsis

DFC Library: Fish-Head Steve by James Turner, Jamie Smart

This is a hilarious comedy about a sleepy mid-western town, Spumville, whose inhabitants wake up one day to find that their heads have been replaced by household objects and family pets! What can possibly have caused this calamity? The nuclear power plant? The aliens? Or something even more sinister? Can our hero Fish Head Steve and his funny-faced fellows solve the mystery? Fishy goings on from the DFC Library - now in a convenient paperback format!

Reviews

A cumulative guffaw session, genuinely hysterically funny stuff, absolutely packed with gags, visual and verbal, slapstick stupid and deliciously clever. -- Richard Burton Forbidden Planet
