From Raymond Briggs, the beloved and bestselling author of The Snowman, comes his first book in a decade, now in an updated edition with new columns and illustrations.
Notes from the Sofa is a beautifully illustrated compilation of reflections on life and what it means to get older. Raymond dips into his past to remind us of scrumping apples, National Service, party lines on telephones, the torment of cinema organs and the endless obsession with laxatives, alongside his take on the absurdities of the modern world.
This collection gives us warm and memorable sketches of Raymond’s life now and reminds us why he is one of our best-loved storytellers.
From joyful illustrated classics to vital essay collections, these are the books our team of editors can't wait to put under the tree this year.
Three major partnerships have been announced to mark the 40th anniversary of the much-loved Christmas classic by Raymond Briggs.
