15792001Ah, Mr. Colin Mochrie.  A funny man. A funny Canadian man.   Now it seems our beloved Canuck comic has yet another job – author.  This is his first effort and we are all the richer for it.  He writes using the first sentence of a classic story as a launching point to spin his own version of events.  It matters not if you are familiar with the original work. A Tale of Two Critters.  Franken’s Time.  The Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Fourth.  You get the idea.  He has a distinctive, poetic way with words –   and you laugh.  A lot.

I loved this book.    Dear Mr. Mochrie, while I appreciate your stage comedy I must insist you get back to writing between gigs.  Please sir, I want some more !

Eh Plus, sir.  I give this book 7.5 wacky fables out of 10.
