The third book in the 'Molesworth' sequence and everything is getting more offbeat and surreal. This book is supposedly a guide to life in the coming atomic age, but in fact it's a set of bizarre almost-random musings with a strong anti-authoritarian slant. The text is brilliant quasi-stream-of-consciousness stuff and the illustrations are technically brilliant and thematically perfect. Hilarious!

The third and weakest of the Geoffrey Williams books.
