April Fool's Day

12th April 2018

To celebrate April Fools Day (or Poisson d'Avril in French), that mischievous day for laughing and playing tricks, we have put our minds together and come up with a selection of our favourite funny books. Everyone seems to agree that effective comic writing is incredibly difficult and yet surprisingly it can often be overlooked as less accomplished than serious writing. So here's a list of some excellent writers who have pulled it off.

From the moment I picked up your book until I put it down, I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it. — Groucho Marx
