Stranger Fillings

Edible recipes to turn your world upside down!

By The Muffin Brothers

  • Hardback
  • £9.99

Hilarious edible recipes inspired by the hugely popular Netflix show, STRANGER THINGS.

When a young boy goes missing, a small town uncovers a mystery involving secret recipes, supernatural whisking forces and one strange ingredient...

In this 80s-tastic cookbook, the Muffin Brothers bring you an out-of-this-world collection of delicious and disturbing edible treats.

Whip up a psychokinetic storm with recipes such as Elle's Special Dip, Joyce's Alphabet Soup, Mike's Secret Crush and Barb's Scone Missing.

Each crumb is sure to vanish without a trace.

Biographical Notes

After a particularly intense game of Dungeons and Dragons, the Muffin Brothers wandered to the fridge for a late-night snack only to find themselves drawn into a strange netherworld. Here, where salty is sweet and sweet is sour, they battled a host of deliciously abominable treats: from Elle's Eleven Eggos, to the Upside Down Cake, all the while trying to outwit the hideously moreish DemoGorgon(zola) Tart. Now safely returned home, the brothers spend their time playing less risky games, such as Risk, while periodically regurgitating slug-like creatures. This is their first (and probably last) book.

The Upside

Abdel Sellou
Authors:
Abdel Sellou

The story of how Abdel Sellou (a charismatic ex-con) came to be the caretaker of Philippe Pozzo di Borgo (a paralyzed French aristocrat) inspired the award-winning French movie Les Intouchables (2012), which became an international phenomenon and broke records as one of the most successful French movies of all time. Now, The Upside, the American remake of Les Intouchables, starring Kevin Hart, Bryan Cranston, and Nicole Kidman will be released in both the US and the UK in January 2019.Abdel Sellou and Philippe Pozzo di Borgo were two people marginalized by society: Sellou a wisecracking, unemployed immigrant, just out on parole; Pozzo a man born to wealth and privilege, recently paralyzed from the neck down after a paragliding accident. How they came to help each other, and the unlikely friendship that became a lifeline for them both, is an uplifting story that's now been told and retold around the world.

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

Eric Idle
Authors:
Eric Idle

We know him best for his unforgettable roles on Monty Python - from the Flying Circus to The Meaning of Life. Now, Eric Idle reflects on the meaning of his own life in this entertaining memoir that takes us on a remarkable journey from his childhood in an austere boarding school through his successful career in comedy, television, theatre and film. Coming of age as a writer and comedian during the Sixties and Seventies, Eric stumbled into the crossroads of the cultural revolution and found himself rubbing shoulders with the likes of George Harrison, David Bowie and Robin Williams, all of whom became dear lifelong friends. With anecdotes sprinkled throughout involving other close friends and luminaries such as Mike Nichols, Mick Jagger, Steve Martin, Paul Simon, Lorne Michaels, and many more, as well as the Pythons themselves, Eric captures a time of tremendous creative output with equal parts hilarity and heart. In Always Look on the Bright Side of Life, named for the song he wrote for Life of Brian and which has since become the number one song played at funerals in the UK, he shares the highlights of his life and career with the kind of offbeat humour that has delighted his audiences for five decades. The year 2019 marks the fiftieth anniversary of The Pythons and Eric is marking the occasion with this hilarious memoir chock full of behind-the-scenes stories from a high-flying life featuring everyone from Princess Leia to Queen Elizabeth.Written and read by Eric Idle(p) Orion Publishing Group 2018
