Enter the hilarious world of comedian James Campbell.
Boyface Antelope has been waiting his whole life to turn ten and be allowed to enter his parents' stripemongering shop so he can take stripes off animals and put them on something different. Like tartan onto badgers, or removing the stripes of zebras to make ponies. On the morning of his tenth birthday he finds his parents ill, and they ask him not just to go in the shop but to look after it on his own! Will he be able to keep the stripemongery running smoothly?
Weird, wacky and wonderful. - Parents in Touch
An engagingly eccentric story set in the seaside village of Stoddenage-on-Sea. Mark Weighton's line drawings are an added pleasure. - The Independent on Sunday
Charming and hilarious... will entertain adults just as much as children. - Isla Dawes (The Kew Bookshop)
Praise for James Campbell - :
James Campbell has been entertaining children for 18 years and he really knows what he's about. - edinburghspotlight.com
James Campbell pioneered the idea of standup for children, and it is still genuinely impressive to watch him hold the attention of a theatre full of five- to 10-year-olds for an hour with nothing but a microphone. - Guardian
