Book of the week: The Ultimate Insult Generator by Mike Barfield


If you want your children to stop using swearwords make them read The Ultimate Insult Generator filled with over 60 Million Hilarious Zingers and Stingers published by Laurence King in August 2017.


The Ultimate Insult Generator is a zany new insult-generating flipbook by the hilarious comic writer and children’s author, Mike Barfield. My 11 year old son could not put it down for the first week since getting it.  

  This fantastically-fun flipbook allows you to generate 68 million brilliantly beastly insults for all occasions. Wacky and sometimes plain silly, this book will ensure you’ll always have the last word, not to mention the last laugh!


Includes hundreds of heckles for silencing sassy siblings, millions of madcap comebacks to confuse mum and dad, and plenty of playful put-downs for frenemies and enemies. A must for fun-loving kids aged 6+.


Every page including the cover is an interactive experience for the reader, and it's fun not just for kids but even adults. I had never thought I would enjoy inventing lots of new insults, guilt free (giggle).
