Come on, if it was Richard Osman from Fairmile Comprehensive he wouldn't have got a look in. Old school tie, Oxbridge, television personality Do I need to elaborate?
Being well known is obviously a great boost to publisher interest. I haven't read Richard Osman but I imagine all his television experience has given him a feel for a good story and awareness of identifying a target readership.
I really like it, I thought the humor was terrific and the plot was good.
This proves my point Richard Osman is both meat and poison! Meat for you Georgina and poison for me 😂!
