Inhaltsangabe: With this first book in Russell Brand s Trickster Tales series, the famed comedian, actor, and bestselling author delivers a hilarious retelling of an old fairytale favorite that will appeal to adults and children alike.
Once upon a time, long ago, in a time that seemed, to those present, exactly like now except their teeth weren t so clean and more things were wooden, there was a town called Hamelin. The people of Hamelin were a pompous bunch who loved themselves and their town so much that if it were possible they would have spent all day zipped up in a space suit smelling their own farts. But space suits hadn t been invented yet so they couldn t.
Then one day without warning a gang of rats bowled into the town and began causing a right rumpus
So begins Russell Brand s wildly funny and surprisingly wise retelling of the classic tale The Pied Piper of Hamelin. Whether you re a kid or a grown-up kid, you ll be chuckling the whole way through this zany story that bypasses Brand s more adult humor for the outrageous, the madcap, and the just plain silly.
Maybe you ve heard about the Pied Piper before, with his strange music and those pompous townspeople and pesky rats. Or maybe you haven t. But one thing is for sure: you ve never heard it quite like this."
"He attacks his first children's book with full force, coloring the story in with humorous asides, witty turns of phrase and a few choice nuggets of sage wisdom. Illustrator Riddell is just as sharp, filling the book with eye-popping illustrations and beautiful colouring . . . More important is Brand's treatment of the buffoons and bullies that occupy Hamelin: His takes on religion, sexism, consumerism and self-esteem are just as important to the text as the classic tale it's based on. His opinions are as easy to discern as many a conservative pundit's, though very much on the other side of the political spectrum. A smart, funny, iconoclastic take on an old classic" (Kirkus Reviews)
"Russell Brand's new book is a must-buy. Making his children's literature debut, Russell adds his magic to the tale of the legendary rat catcher, accompanied by mesmerising illustrations from Chris Riddell" (OK! Magazine)
"Every page is crowded with brightly coloured, immaculately illustrated characters" (Independent)
"When it comes to pleasure for readers, Brand's genuinely original sparky prose delivers . . . It's damn good fun" (Big Issue)
"The story is sassy, whimsical, a bit rude at times, and just as much fun for adult readers as well as kids. The illustrations are colorful and wildly expressive" (Childrens Book Chat blog)
