"has an exceptionally high joke count"

If for any reason you feel the need for a funny book, especially one to read aloud to keep the whole family chortling, Martin Howard’s second title about Alfie Fleet has an exceptionally high joke count...

Lots of silly names, lavatorial humour and unrestrained and unexpected one-liners, plus lively illustrations, make this the ultimate intergalactic escapism.
