Lean, besuited and bespectacled, the wry wordsmith is on the road again, beadily observing the world from behind those trademark glasses.

John tells us tales of a Frenchman with some unusual [but clean] habits, which include burying his dog’s kennel and his own luggage pieces.

The stories appear alongside other new works, which include an address to aliens on the subject of transport, a poem about a non-talking parrot and some animal impersonations with the aid of a handkerchief. The audience are invited to sing along. But not to dance.

Much.

Suitable for most people over seven.

“Typically brilliant songs and stories about a Gallic small-town hero with a dog called Chirac” The Guardian
