An adorable paperback edition of a popular hardback by bestselling humorist Rohan Candappa. It's an extraordinary world out there and The One Year Old is here to share his revelatory journey through babyhood. From full and frank explanations as to why he sometime blows snot bubbles through his nose (because he can) to the mystery of the stalker (if someone had just explained to him about mirrors). From the frustrating stupidity of his parents (Hairy and Smooth) to delights of running around naked on the kitchen table, it's a truly enlightening and delightfully funny read. To every parent who's ever wearily wiped food from the floor and said 'Is this your idea of a game?' - beware. The One Year Old is about to reveal just how much he's been playing with you.

UK Kirkus Review » Ever wandered what goes on in the head of a one-year-old? Here's a book that lets you know. Well, kind of. Candappa's previous books include The Little Book of Stress and The Stocking Filler. Autobiography of a One Year Old is the same kind of stocking filler material. A quick read, probably best consumed while you're waiting for your Christmas turkey to digest, it tells the tale of a perky one-year-old and gives the little chap the voice of a cynical adult. Broken down into lots of sections, each charting a different area of discovery, it explores such topics as how best to use the baby-listening device left by the parents to your advantage and the simple joys of running around the coffe table without any clothes on. It's all light-hearted stuff. Some of the section titles raise a snigger or two, like this twist on a famous line from the Vietnam movie Apocalypse Now: 'I love the smell of nappies in the morning. They smell of victory.' (Kirkus UK)
