The Boy Who Kicked Pigs Paperback / softback
by Tom Baker
'Grotesque and depraved and above all very funny.' Ardal O'HanlonRobert Caligari is a thoroughly evil thirteen-year-old who gets his kicks from kicking pigs.
Afer a humiliating episode with a bacon butty, Robert realizes just how much he loathes the human race - and his revenge is truly terrible.
This subversive horror-fantasy from Tom Baker (ex-monk, ex-sailor, and the ultimate Doctor Who) is outrageous and funny, and since the hardback was published in 1999 has gone on to become a cult classic.
It is illustrated throughout with b/w line drawings from David Roberts.
