There's a particular type of TV programme for young children that consists of adults dressed in bright colours prancing about and making loud, silly noises in the assumption that three year olds will find this funny. If I was three years old I think I'd say to myself, "They're patronising me". This is the adult version. There's more to humour than making silly associations. I like Neil Gaiman's books which is why I tried this but his co-author was clearly in the wrong profession. The narrator, perhaps embarrassed about the shite he's reading and keen to get it over and done with, speaks as if he's in a speed reading contest. It doesn't help. It's still shite.
Terry Pratchett's contribution.
Neil Gaiman should have written it by himself and also narrated it.
