Book of the Week: The Gigantic Beard that was Evil

Book of the Week: The Gigantic Beard that was Evil

Watch the video above to hear what I thought of The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil by Stephen Collins. Here’s the Goodreads blurb:

On the buttoned-down island of Here, all is well. By which we mean: orderly, neat, contained and, moreover, beardless.

Or at least it is until one famous day, when Dave, bald but for a single hair, finds himself assailed by a terrifying, unstoppable… monster*!

Where did it come from? How should the islanders deal with it? And what, most importantly, are they going to do with Dave?

The first book from a new leading light of UK comics, The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil is an off-beat fable worthy of Roald Dahl. It is about life, death and the meaning of beards.

(*We mean a gigantic beard, basically.)
