Show that special someone how much they truly mean to you. Gurgle the sweet language of Love into their ear, then present them with this book so that they can figure out why you are talking Martian. We all know what difficult it can be when you try to tell that special someone how much they mean to you. Gestures filled with love and romance somehow always ends up a bit of an embarrassment. You buy lilies when you know they remind your girlfriend of death. You cook a delicious peanut curry for the boyfriend with nut allergies. And you can guarantee that whilst you meant this day to be the day you told them those three magic words, all you'll be able to muster are some not very romantic four letter ones. "Vimrod" is here to say all those romantic things you've been desperate to say but just couldn't find the right way to say them. I'm so in love with you. Let's fly to the moon and back (we can stop for a quick pee though if you need one). I wanna hug ya, like do donut hugs da hole in da donut. It's romance, but not as we know it! Simple but bold illustrations with bright and cheery colours make these books the perfect gift for the man or woman of your dreams.
