Author Mitchell Symons who brought you such books as;The Ultimate Loo Book and How Much Poo Does An Elephant Do? Has turned his hand to poetry, with his new book ‘Happily Never After: Modern Cautionary Tales’ a collection of cautionary tales inspired by Hilaire Belloc’s Cautionary Verses. Meet this group of truly horrible kids, Callum: who was a dreadful bully until he received his come-uppance; Tiffany: who couldn’t put down her mobile phone and died a horrible death; Bill: whose ability to fart ended in tears and Chloe: whose determination to have the most Facebook friends meant she lost her real ones, and learn from their mistakes. This modern take on old classics brings us straight into the twenty first century and the issues and problems facing many a young person; Who has the most friends on a social network, whose the most popular girl in school, do I have the best phone, and many more.
Mitch is currently traveling the globe trying to stay one step ahead of the cold, and fill his brain to bursting point with new useless facts that he an share with the world. Whether we want to know or not.
