Great Lies to Tell Small Kids (Paperback)


Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days
More wicked humor from the mind of the bestselling author of The Book of Bunny Suicides and The Return of the Bunny Suicides.

Cartoonist Andy Riley turns his irreverent wit to another group of small creatures that lurk among us seemingly everywhere: children.

From the benign (every ant you meet must be named) to the truly cruel (Ronald McDonald is dead!), each hilarious cartoon has a tall tale to educate children and entertain wicked adults everywhere.

Andy Riley is a scriptwriter for television and film. His credits include Trigger Happy TV, Smack the Pony, Black Books, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts award-winning Robbie the Reindeer, and the Disney animated film Gnomeo and Juliet—with a score by Tim Rice and Elton John.  He draws a weekly comic strip called “Roasted” for The Observer magazine.
