Ah, 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.
