Imagine being called Pablo by your Art crazed, culturally aloof and snobbish parents. No wonder our hero underhandedly sneaks off to his ‘normal’ mates’ houses to eat fast food and watch rubbish TV programmes. His parents find his lack of artistic promise a grave disappointment, little knowing that their son can draw cartoons that predict the future, which is the very thing that leads to his kidnap to Spain by some keen followers of horse racing!
This is a fast, truly amusing read and Pablo a most engaging character. The other characters around him are suitably cartoonish and events unfold a little bit surreally like the best animations.
I plan to get it into the hands of as many fun-read lovers as possible.
