I got a copy of Andy Riley’s Bunny Suicides last year and was rolling on the floor laughing all through the book. The sense of humour from Riley is very dark but hilarious, much like the humour of such great comedies like Black Books or Little Britain (which he has scriptwriting credits for).
Wine Makes Mummy Clever is only 64 pages, but every cartoon and joke was a classic, with so many situations that ring true for any mother. I love how Riley makes such simple things so funny, and can’t wait to pick up his next book, “Beer Makes Daddy Strong”.
If you need a good laugh then pick up a copy of this for yourself and for your mother for mother's day.
