HAPPINESS Edward Monkton
In this delightful little book, Edward Monkton unlocks the secrets of Happiness in a funny, wise and inspiring collection of thoughts and cartoon drawings. Sometimes just slightly bizarre, but often totally surreal, these quirky doodles and their captions bear meanings of latent depth. They are likely to leave some laughing uncontrollably (the Cygnus editorial team still haven't recovered), others nodding knowingly, and a few just scratching their heads in bewilderment. This is a wonderful gift to spread a smile as wide as that worn by The Pig of Happiness and to share a message as loving as The Cloud of Joy: 'May its gentle rain of happiness fall soft upon your head.'
