Custard, cricket, Shakespeare, dogs, mangold hurling, marmite, spadgewhistles, fog…
In Terribly English, cartoonist Rupert Besley runs a fond eye over all that is impenetrable about England, all that is weird and all that makes this country so very, um, English.
Catch up on customs, clothes, class and all things English; from tourist hot-spots to homely truths, national treasures to national foibles, from Ackenthwaite and Barfs in Cumbria to Bottoms and Splatt in Cornwall.
Packed with cartoons, Terribly English is the perfect gift for baffled visitors, banished natives, bookish Bed & Breakfasts or maybe just the bathroom.
Warning, contains jokes.

“The best-selling cartoonist of the past three decades… The author is fascinated by the idiosyncrasies of England and the English…It’s all terribly good fun.”
‘Picture Postcard Monthly’
“One jam-packed and rather bulging book of fascinating facts and satirical shenanigans…All of this is decorated throughout with Rupert’s superb cartoons, gloriously coloured and deliciously detailed.”
“An entertaining collection of stories and cartoons that illustrate life in our glorious country…Gathered with characteristic modesty and hesitation into the perfect gift for any foreigner.”
