Best Holiday Ever by Orison Carlile
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is one of my new favourite books and I recommend this to adults as well as kids as it is so, so funny - the humour is right up my cabbage patch. If you don't find this funny then you need urgent surgery, (luckily Dr. Watson the Slug is available for a small fee). How do I describe this book? It's like a series of comedy sketches with the overall arc of memories of a child's holiday, of course seen through the innocent eyes of a rather (perhaps dry-witted) child. We're taken through different pivotal memories of the holiday when hilarious moments took place, for example dad's parking at the airport, and the episode with the diarrhoea. The funniest, laugh out loud moment came towards the end at airport security - I shan't give it away. The illustrations fit perfectly with the narrative and are rip-roaringly funny.
