Smally The Mouse doesn't have many friends. He doesn't know that, so he decides to throw a party and invite everyone he knows. The party's crap, so Paula the Sexually Available Female Hedgehog, Looks Smart the Patronising Owl and The No Purpose Tortoise decide that taking drugs is the only remedy. Paula makes moves on Smally, Looks Smart laughs at Smally's nice balloon, smokes spliffs and falls asleep, and The No Purpose Tortoise takes acid, flips out, climbs up onto the roof and refuses to come down. Smally is the only one who isn't high and so he's got to sort out the mess. In this wonderfully quirky and hilarious illustrated book, Daren King, the acclaimed author of Jim Giraffe and Boxy an Star, has managed to portray the betrayal and disappointment we've all felt at a bad party and the need for drugs that they always seem to engender.
