The Weasel Puffin Unicorn Baboon Pig Lobster Race is a psychedelic children's story best described as, 'Doctor Dolittle meets Sergeant Pepper'. Beautifully illustrated, its zany story follows a race as feverishly competitive as any held before. All manner of dastardly plans and cheats are concocted by the beasts to gain advantage, including custard trampolines and banana diggers (the swines!). The Unicorn alone respects the rules of the race. Admirable, yes, but in this weasel-cheats-puffin world what chance of victory does that give him? Written by James Thorp and illustrated by Angus Mackinnon this anarchic and riotous story is an unmissable treat for all.
