    Danny Wallace, the author of Yes Man, has turned his attention to children's books with hilarious results. He's created a lovable character called Hamish and these three misadventures will delight readers of David Walliams, Tom Gates and David Baddiel.

    Hamish and the WorldStoppers asks what would you do if the world just stopped... the birds in the air, planes in the sky and every single other person has been frozen by The Terribles. But luckily, 10-year-old Hamish Ellerby knows all about them and is getting set to save the world.

    Hamish and the Neverpeople finds the Earth under threat from a shadowy figure, sinister monsters, thundering metal oddballs and beings that are just like humans (but also not at all); and Hamish and the GravityBurp finds Hamish coming home to find his mum and brother lying flat on their backs on the ceiling! He keeps hearing a burping noise and weird seeds are falling from the sky...

    Passive aggression. Road rage. Snarky tweets. Queue-jumpers. Idiots who are #justsaying. Fat shamers. Victim blaming. Furious waitresses who refuse to sell you a hot dog...We are ruder than we've ever been. In this incisive and very funny book, Danny Wallace investigates the new wave of rudeness that threatens to overwhelm us. He travels the world, visiting our rudest critics, interviewing psychologists, psychiatrists, bell boys, cab drivers, bin men, barristers, politicians, a limo driver called Jose and at least one expert in cooked meat production. In doing so he uncovers the hidden truths behind what makes us rude, whether it can be caught, and how one small moment of rudeness-like being declined a hotdog-can snowball into disaster. From the jihadist who launched a blistering attack on the "Bad manners" of his fellow ISIS militants, to the mayor in Bogota who recruited an army of mimes to highlight inconsiderate driving - this is a very funny and powerful exploration into the way humans work and why it is surely time for an anti-rudeness revolution.

    My name is Jason - and I have just met the most incredible woman, on Charlotte Street. Well, I say 'met'. I sort of held her bags for a second. But she smiled at me! And it was this amazing smile. Of course, I don't know her name, or anything about her at all. But I do happen to have something of hers. She left behind one of those old-school disposable cameras. I've got it. It's here in front of me. So there are two things I could now do: I could develop the photos. See her again, see her life. Maybe work out a way of finding her. Find that smile. Or I could chuck it in a bin like a grown-up. I'm fairly sure one of those ideas is a good one. I'm fairly sure the other might be illegal. Look, if you were me. what would you do?

    You're not imagining it. People are getting ruder. And this is a serious problem. Did you know that even one rude comment in a life and death situation can decrease a surgeon's performance by as much as 50%? That we say we don't want rude politicians, but we vote for them anyway? Or that rude language can sway a jury in a criminal case? Bestselling writer and broadcaster Danny Wallace (Yes Man, Awkward Situations For Men), is on a mission to understand where we have gone wrong. He travels the world interviewing neuroscientists, psychologists, NASA scientists, barristers, bin men, and bellboys. He joins a Radical Honesty group in Germany, talks to drivers about road rage in LA, and confronts his own online troll in a pub. And in doing so, he uncovers the latest thinking about how we behave, how rudeness, once unleashed, can spread like a virus - and how even one flippant remark can snowball into disaster. As insightful and enthralling as it is highly entertaining, F*** You Very Much* is an eye-opening exploration into the worst side of human behaviour. "A cry for human decency... deliciously hilarious. I politely encourage you to read this book. Immediately." Adam Grant author of Originals, Give and Take, Option B *This book was originally published under the title, I Can't Believe You Just Said That. But we decided it just wasn't rude enough...
