This collection of the best of seven years of author Deborah Makarios’s blog frolics hilariously through the alphanumeric system, from Adventures in Fantastical Taxidermy (how to make a severed Jabberwock head of your very own) to 10 Reasons Why Cuttlefish are Amazing.
Along the way it takes in the madness of crochet hook sizing, cats and their assorted lunacies, shopping for swimwear, the unfortunate end to the author’s brief stint as a Disneyesque princess, and, of course, why she has the ambition of a potato.
Bonus material appearing only in this book includes eight ways to fail to assassinate Fidel Castro and three ways to react to the assassination of a royal relative, as well as a soupçon of non-assassinatory content.
Free sample available in multiple formats here.
The Ambition of a Potato is available from a variety of online retailers (see here for details). Ebook only. ISBN: 978-0-473-54333-4.
