About The Book

With Effin Birds, the most eagerly anticipated new volume in the noble avocation of bird identification, you can venture into nature with confidence. This farcical field guide will help you identify over 200 birds, but more importantly, for the first time in history, it will also help you understand what these birds are thinking:

  • The vainglorious grebe is acutely aware of its own magnificence.
  • The hipster pelican thinks the world is a sh*tbarge.
  • The overbearing heron wishes you better luck next time, f*cknuts.
  • The counsellor swallow wants you to maybe try not being a d*ckhead.

Alongside beautiful, scientifically accurate illustrations and a whole lot of swearing is incisive commentary on modern life and the world we, as humans, must navigate. Or maybe it s just some pictures of effin birds, okay?

My Thoughts

First of all, don’t judge this book by the cover, because it’s so much more than a bird’s guide, you’ll enjoy this book since the first page.
Yes, of course, there are some birds description, but not the technical ones you are used to, but with humour and some dark details which will shine some light to the deepest secrets of the most common birds.
The illustrations are really beautiful, in black/white or colour and the details are really impressive. But the best part of the book is how it talks to us in every page, because in every illustration there’s a sentence trying to give some personality to the bird and talking to the reader, and let’s admit it is hilarious!
This is a book to laugh, enjoy and original for anyone, it doesn’t matter if you are obsessed with birds or simply want to laugh. Let the birds talk and enjoy every moment!
