Introduction by - Lesley Joseph
We have a long standing tradition in our house at
Christmas that has gone on for as long as I remember. I always get bubble
bath - my mother gets perfume - but my brother, oh joy, gets the Giles
Annual, and promptly disappears for an hour, chortling and guffawing,
while we wait patiently for him to finish it, so we can catch up with our
Why do we love Giles so much - is it because he
makes us laugh, or is it that we feel that his family is also our family?
We know them all so well - they are so familiar to us, and yet so very
much his own creation.
His cartoons seem to epitomise everything we love
about this country, and no matter how much you look at them, you will
always find something you missed - a child with his head in a bucket -
glorious grandma swigging alcohol in a corner, even the animals have their
own wicked personalities. This version of our little corner of the world
is so special that you feel as long as Giles is around to stop us taking
ourselves too seriously, life can't be too bad.
Thank you Giles for all the fun you bring to
us - never change!
