Guardian Review

Eating Things On Sticks by Anne Fine, reviewed by the big-bearded Philip Ardagh


most of all it's about beards. Early on, Harry goes on a beard tour, from the few proud wisps on the chin of a lady to a thick, hedge-like affair, via a goatee and "bushy prophet" and culminating in "barbaric yet shapely". Harry likes the wild ones. And there's the "Best Beard on the Island" competition with the first prize of a nit comb and the honour that goes with it. (Apparently, there were no razors on the island at all during the Fifty Year Skirmish.) This (bearded) reviewer was hooked! PHILIP ARDAGH
