But his luck doesn't last long when they are all shipwrecked in the Pacific. Seen through Ben's eyes, the uncharted island is a hive of cannibals, mumbo-jumbo, and gals who are more nearly naked than any he has ever seen. And every time he tries to bluff his way out of a situation, he just bluffs himself further in, somehow convincing the natives that he has God-like powers . . .Brought back by popular demand after a gap of three years, Ben the tramp's reappearance in Little God Ben transported his humour, charm and rare philosophy to a startlingly new setting in this quintessentially 1930s comedy thriller.

Editorial Reviews

'His dialogue is invariably amusing.' DAILY MAIL'Mr Farjeon's Ben is not merely a character but a parable.
