Cream of Plankton Soup is a witty, sharply written collection of short stories that is a mixture of modern humour, surreal topics, educational nuggets and hidden deep meanings. Each story within this book is followed by a ‘reader’s blog’, where readers are encouraged to add their own comments about their thoughts and feelings of each story on www.planktonsoup.co.uk. Some stories include readers’ comments during the story in the same way that old cartoon comics had readers’ voice bubbles incorporated into the picture. Sutton fuses recurring themes such as life, death, religion and war, spanning to more obscure areas of everyday life including vaudeville theatre, black magic and microbiology. Among the references to culture, art, Cream of Plankton Soup also delves into science and history, ensuring that there is something for every reader to enjoy. This collection is designed to be dipped into by the reader until overcome with laughter. Readers will be amazed, astonished and bewildered, but above all you won’t be able to help but laugh. This book will appeal to those who enjoy the likes of Monty Python, The Mighty Boosh and Spike Milligan.
