Dear Reader, you probably know the party game "Chinese Whispers" but if you don't here's what happens. A group of your friends and family get together, someone starts off with a sentence, in this case "Piglets in pyjamas danced on tiptoes round a tree". Then they whisper to the next person who whispers what they heard to the next and so on and so on…
You'll find it changes every time because people don't hear properly what's been said. Oh, and by the way, you'll be the last person to hear the message so listen very carefully while you're reading this book because without you there won't be a final page.
Yours sincerely, Andrew Birtles.
P.S. You may be unfamiliar with some of the words used, so brief descriptions have been included to enhance your enjoyment.
Noted Sheffield artist Andrew Birtles' first book is a graphic novel based on the well-known parlour game of Chinese Whispers. Veritably oozing with Andrew's own particular sense of humour this surreal book is an absolute must for the young of all ages. And don't forget dear reader, you alone are responsible for listening out for the final whisper.
