about

Britain has many well documented, yet strange traditions such as Bog Snorkelling, Bonfire Night, Cheese Rolling and Haxey Hood. This book describes 40 more traditions in a similar vein, all of which are less well known. Read about Turtle Rinsing in London, Arrow Catching in Staffordshire, and Animal Gambling in the Forest of Dean. Discover where a Duck Quacking contest, a Pipe Cleaner Festival, and a Thimble Throwing competition take place. Marvel at people's spitting, blowing, and digging exploits. All the stories are distinct and can be read independently; this is a book for the busy individual who has a spare five or ten minutes to discover the secrets of Biscuit Rolling.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't judge a book by it's cover, or maybe you should The book is hilarious in the rendition of these stories and an interesting twist to storytelling from the author. I don’t know much about British people but I feel I know a little bit more now … on a different level. Worth the read!
