The Best of Times
A new collection of the award-winning cartoonist.
By Peter Brookes - Hardback
Peter Brookes' latest collection of sharp political sketches brings us right up to date with Obama, Brown, Mandy, Cameron, Osbourne and many more. Heads of states to religious heads are all happily lampooned by this irreverent, award-winning Times cartoonist. As recession hits, hoodies storm the Royal Bank of Scotland and Boris Johnson is suggesting that children fill empty seats at the London Olympics, we are fortunate to have Peter Brookes' wicked eye commentating on the foibles and fancies in our politics and news. According to Brookes, Jackie Smith's third home is a nuclear bunker. The engine on a Boeing 777 is a roulette wheel, while two wary passengers are wondering if flying could be a gamble. His list of worldwide high-velocity assault weapons includes a pistol in Germany, an AK47 in Northern Ireland, and a shoe in Iraq. Biting, superbly entertaining, and laugh-out-loud funny.
