In the beginning there was Bob. And Bob created the heavens and the earth and the beasts of the field and the creatures of the sea, and twenty-five million other species including lots and lots of gorgeous girls. And all of this, he created in just six days. Six days! Congratulations Bob! No wonder Earth is such a mess. Imagine that God is a typical teenage boy. He is lazy, careless, self-obsessed, sex-mad - and about to meet Lucy, the most beautiful girl on earth. Unfortunately, whenever Bob falls in love, disaster follows. Let us pray that Bob does not fall in love with Lucy.

This is Meg Rosoff at her ingenious best; a cracking story full of brilliant humour and teen angst. In fact it's so good we reckon you'll read it in a sitting.

If you like Meg Rosoff you might also like to read books by Mark Haddon, Alexander McCall Smith and Dodie Smith.

Gathered together under the umbrella of 'Fiction Puffin Loves' these are books we feel expecially passionate about.

This is Fiction Puffin Loves."


Praise for The Bride's Farewell:

'Masterful describes the whole of this narrative. Rosoff not only knows how to tell a tale, she is unashamed of telling it. Write Away Praise for What I Was: Already a classic.' Sunday Times

Praise for What I Was:

'a book which will completely startle you in an awesomely crazy way with an utterly amazing flair.' Olivia,

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
