NOTE: Parents may wish to check the content is suitable for their child. The author slams the corrupt and immoral and highlights the worthy and good in this often outrageous and wonderfully eye-catching book. Brand manages to combine a chillingly creepy Piper and some pretty ghastly characters with quite a lot of toilet humour (so repulsively descriptive it makes you gag and want to put a peg on your nose!). Chris Riddell’s stunning illustrations bewitchingly wrap around, through and under the text, enabling the story to leap from the pages. The old Pied Piper tale is thoroughly stomped on but the morals remain firmly in place. This is a book that actively encourages you to think, it is also likely to make you chortle, gasp, flinch and screech in shock and horror. Yet love it or hate it, it will remain in your mind long after finishing. ~ Liz Robinson
