Rob and Tom’s creative partnership began in the 1980s when Tom (the younger brother) was born. Now, Rob is a bestselling writer and Tom is an illustrator. They’ve created everything from zoo exhibitions and ice cream van designs to sitcoms, books, newspaper cartoons and movie scripts. They made this book as an experiment to try to understand the species that they are a part of, and that you’re most likely a part of too. Despite everything they learned, they’re still hopeful about what’s next for humans and the planet.



If a friend lets you down – perhaps by moving away for work and not answering your texts any more – you can take revenge by organising a reunion and slipping a fast-acting laxative into their pasta.
