Best Review - Top 11 Funny Edward Monkton Books

E

dward Monkton, perhaps better known as the U.K.'s top-selling living poet Giles Andreae, is known for his strangely obvious, yet hilarious greeting cards, each featuring a stick figure or brightly coloured cartoon and an Uplifiting Message so ridiculous that it sends everyone who reads it into fits of giggles. But he has also published several books! Stylish, collectable gifts, each 32 pages long, they are both thought-provoking and amusing. From the Penguin of Death, to The Wonderful Man, these stories and collections are ideal unexpected gifts.

In the words of Edward Monkton, "These drawings would like to be your friends. Use them for inspiration. There is no corner of life into which they cannot shine the bright torch of insight. Trust these drawings. They will not let you down."

A Lovely Love Story


Best ads 0

Together they stand on the hill, telling each other stories and feeling the warmth of the sun on their backs. And that, my friends, is how it is with love." --Edward Monkton
Mr. Darcy and Miss Bennett. Ozzie and Harriet. Jay-Z and Beyonce. Great couples often find togetherness by embracing their individual differences. In this modern-day fable, Edward Monkton pens an irresistible love story about a fiercely funny but distant Dinosaur who falls in love with a forgetful but free-spirited (and shopping-savvy) Lovely Other Dinosaur.

Happiness

So simple in concept yet often so mysteriously tricky in practice, happiness is many things to many people.
To best-selling artist, humorist, and philosopher Edward Monkton, happiness is an excellent basis for another clever collection of his amusing and inspiring thoughts and drawings. In this one, titled simply enough, Happiness, Monkton points out that the secret of happiness, as with the answers to so many of life's grander mysteries, has been right in front of us all along.

In Happiness, Monkton pairs his astute insights with his droll artwork to gain insight into this most-common-yet-elusive of emotions. Following the success of his stylish and highly original books The Pig of Happiness and A Lovely Love Story, Monkton has created a thoughtful and moving book that, like happiness itself, is appealing to us all.

The Shoes of Salvation

If a woman has beautiful shoes, does she really need anything more from life? When interviewing Sarah Jessica Parker, Time magazine devoted the entire interview solely to questions of the sole. In step with a woman's soul-fulfilling need for shoes, Edward Monkton writes in The Shoes of Salvation: "For the first time in her life, the lady felt complete. And the lady knew what she had instinctively known all along. That sometimes, only glorious shoes can save you.

Shoes, Chocs, Bags, and Frocks

A compendium of beautiful thoughts for women of taste and splendor.
Edward Monkton, perhaps better known as the U.K.'s top-selling living poet Giles Andreae, pairs a witty and quirky writing style with simple yet elegant illustrations to celebrate the four bastions of femininity, namely: shoes, chocolate, purses, and clothes.

Be it a handbag of glory, the shoes of salvation, the beautiful frock, or the kingdom of chocolate, Monkton fluidly expounds the virtues of many a lady's desires:

"Buy me, Lady," said the frock,

"and I will make you into a

BEAUTIFUL and WHOLE and

COMPLETE Human Being."

"Do not be SILLY," said the Man,

"for a frock alone cannot do that."

"TRUE," said the Lady. "I will

have the Shoes and the Bag as well."

The Lady and the Chocolate

". . . Henceforth, let all ladies know that it is not THEY who need CHOCOLATE for happiness. It is CHOCOLATE that needs THEM."
Edward Monkton pens a loving parable about a lady of great kindness who gives chocolate the very reason for existing--to be eaten by her!

A beautifully presented must-have gift book for any woman with a weakness for the sweet stuff. The story provides the perfect excuse for eating chocolate-lots of it-making it the perfect present for special occasions ranging from birthdays, Christmas, and Valentine's Day, to Mother's Day, Easter, and more.

Monkton's charming narrative accompanies his original, hand-lettered black-and-white illustrations to convey the redemptive powers of the cocoa bean transformed to the elevated plateau of confectionery confidant.

The Penguin of Death (The Ballad of Method)

". . . suddenly you hear it in a voice so clear and strong, a strange and SUBTLE melody A HAUNTING Penguin song."
In this hauntingly nuanced ballad, Edward Monkton takes you on an epic journey to the heart of life . . . and to the strange and wonderful release that is DEATH by Method 412.

Lyrical. Entrancing. Once you have made the fateful journey to the enigmatic Penguin's snowy palace, he invites you in to share with him a final cup of tea before subjecting you to the unimagined ecstasy of his ultimate treatment.

A delicious mixture of euphoria and fright meld to reveal something wonderful and bright in this eccentric Monkton narrative that accompanies his trademark, hand-lettered black-and-white illustrations.
