Bob Slayer has written a book and Rich Rose illustrated it...
aka "Bob Slayer the Baby Years".
Got kids? Here's how to start them on the booze!
Want Kids? Maybe just go on a nice holiday instead?

FIRST TARGET REACHED - THANK YOU
That was the minimum amount we needed to print a few books
Everything raised will be spent on producing the book
NOW GOING FOR 150%
So we can print a better cover and more books to have at gigs
NEARLY @ 150% - Wooo!
Thank you (and please don't stop!)

Every Children's publisher in the UK rejected it - but what do they know?
They all laughably told us that the content was inappropriate.
Of course it it inappropriate...
Big Kids love the swearsies - they are the new Pokemon!
Fortunately you can pre-order it for yourself here,
Or as the perfect Christman present for all the family...
Ages 16+

You can also receive one of the other rewards exclusive artwork, a caricature, a show in your own home, a magical mystery tour... even your very own baby...
All of which will help make this project happen...
(see FAQ at bottom)

Here is a tiny taster: 

"THE HAPPY DRUNK"
aka Bob Slayer the Baby Years

Once upon a time a baby was born...
He was very Fat...
And very very HAPPY... 

He was very Fat...
Very, very Happy...
And very, very, very UGLY...

He was so ugly that when his mummy saw him she began to cry...
Waaaaaaaa!
Waaaaaaaaaa!

It is ready to go... Please get on board so that we can print it and make it happen...

Here is something else I made (However it has nothing to do with this project) 

 I also made this (for 2)

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk is you not caring...
But you do care don't you?
You are my favorite...

As for the biggest challenge;
That would be my general level of incompetence
However I have thought of that as well and brought a team to help me out!
# Rich Rose has done all the artwork of course...
# Alice Tams is the "Photoshop wizard"
# Nick Awde of Desert Hearts Books has released hundreds of books, which is good because I haven't done any! (Well we put out Phil Kay's book together) He is the man behind editing, layout, proofing the book, printing and distribution - yes it will be on Amazon and even available for bookshops!

As you can see we have put together a formidable team for this little book!
--> Pre-order a copy today and you will be the most essential part of it!

    MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR... I used to tour manage bands - "An ex-tour manager, wilder than the acts he used to look after..." (NME) - Now I can tour manage people! I could pick you up from anywhere in the UK in my 9 seater minibus (with fridge) and take you on an epic adventure: Alton Towers, The Seaside, France (if you are nice). You can even sit in the seat that Snoop Dogg sat in! It's less than £40 each. (£30 really as you will ALL get a book). Hell i'll also do an amazing gig! (doesn't include expenses like fuel or ferries and tickets) Do not underestimate the lengths I will go to in order to make this amazing!
