We're Going On A Bar Hunt A Parody

LoveReading View on We're Going On A Bar Hunt A Parody

“We’re going on a bar hunt. We’re going to find a cool one. The babysitter’s booked – We’re not old!” So chant the optimistic parents at the beginning of the book. But the bar hunt doesn’t quite go to plan and the book ends with heavy heads, lost keys and children bouncing around on the sofa at 6am. No more bar-hunts again for these two! A fun parody of the children’s classic title accompanied by Gillian Johnson’s witty illustrations.

We're Going On A Bar Hunt A Parody Synopsis

Bestselling authors Emlyn Rees and Josie Lloyd also happen to be parents, so they understand the complications of organising a rare night out. In this parody of the famous children's book, two parents set off for a night on the tiles, and encounter a series of watering holes and bars before an alarming encounter with a bear sends them running home to their children. Gillian Johnson is the author and illustrator of the successful Monster Hospital and Thora series for children. Her illustrations bring this story to life, gently parodying the original but adding an anarchic edge as the evening progresses. We're not going on a bar hunt again!
