"Colin Mochrie is a comedic and creative force to be reckoned with. Therefore, this book is a literary force to be reckoned with. If you are too lazy for reckoning, just read this book and everything will work out nicely." -BRAD SHERWOOD

"Colin Mochrie is devastatingly handsome, perilously smart, and smells like warm maple syrup. Step inside his hilarious and complex mind, and abandon all hope." -AISHA TYLER

"I adore Colin Mochrie. I think he is brilliant, so talented AND a dear sweet man. Also, he's funny as well and a good kisser " -FLORENCE HENDERSON

Based on the improv game First Line, Last Line, Colin Mochrie of Whose Line is it Anyway? fame puts a unique spin on works of classic literature. Taking the first line and last line from classic books and poems, Colin recasts these familiar stories in his own trademark offbeat style:

- A verbose coyote becomes the star of A Tale of Two Critters

- Ishmael is a struggling actor hunting for a good hair day in Moby

- A rainy day at home becomes a zombie-killing adventure in The Cat and My Dad

- Mighty Casey strikes out again in Casey at the Bar

These stories, and many more, prove that no literary masterpiece is too big, or too small, for the improvisational comedy treatment.
