My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bonus points for actually reading this aloud like a story book!

If you haven’t already read The Adventures of the Princess and Mr. Whiffle: The Thing Beneath the Bed, do that first. As the sticker says on the cover, “this shit is not for kids. Seriously.” It’s a children’s book, made for adults. And none of that tricky “oh this looks like it’s for kids but there is subtle humour for the parents.” Don’t ever read this to a child, ever. Even I was disturbed.

This one’s a much longer story, and although doesn’t have such a delightful twist as the first, still rewards a re-read with all sorts of easter eggs and clever illustrations.

What really made it was the bonus content in the back, including notes from Pat to Nate and a script for the whole book. “Over 9000” is used—that’s all you need to know.
