      Title: Cosmic Author: Frank Cottrell Boyce Genre: Contemporary (with a bit of Sci Fi since it’s sort of set in SPACE) / Children’s Publisher: Macmillan Publication date: July (First edition) Paperback: pages Liam has always felt a bit like he’s stuck between two worlds. This is primarily because he’s a twelve-year-old kid who looks like he’s about thirty. "Candide" is the story of a gentle man who, though pummeled and slapped in every direction by fate, clings desperately to the belief that he lives in "the best of all possible worlds."

Pepper and Carrot Comic – Episode Pepper is offered everything she’d ever wished for by a genie. But she refuses! You’ll never.

      What the reader confronts is a book that is, in every way, unbound. That sense of “unbound”-ing lies at the center of the whirlwind of thought that comprises Cosmic Pessimism. Thacker, a professor at the New School, has recently published a trilogy of books, Horror of Philosophy, which looks at the seemingly doomed project of existence. Summary: Cosmic is a truly magical book about the magic of parents and comes highly recommended for all ages. Buy? Yes Borrow?
