The Boy With A Cuckoo Clock Heart


I went passed a book shop t'other day.

I walked straight passed.

Doubled back on my steps.....and walked right in.

The first thing to catch my eye was this:


An imagination poking cover in wonderful colours.

And then there was the random page that I opened:
Then the intro:


Finally, to chase away any last doubts:

If Cantona says yes..........

Mr Cantona intrigues me.

My imagination has been stoked.

I bought the book and plan to fall into it's pages later today.

  5. The cover of the book is gorgeous! And I like that the font used inside seems to match the cover... I'm all about content but a unique cover and a typeface that isn't just Helvetica or Times New Roman usually catches my interest when it comes to books :)
