Review: Why Steve Was Late by Dave Skinner and Henry Paker

In the same vein as ‘101 uses for a dead cat’, this cartoon book offers ‘101 exceptional excuses for terrible timekeeping.’

From the incredibly imaginative (although highly unlikely) excuse of the children turning into zombies over breakfast, to the slightly more plausible got off at the wrong stop, the excuses had me giggling with every turn of the page. 

One of the best things about the book is that it’s very easy to pick up for a quick flick when you’ve got a few minutes to fill (and if you happen to have more time on your hands the pictures are all in black and white so you could always grab some crayons and colour them in).

Published by Atlantic Books, £6.99.
