The Beano & The Book of Everyone get up to mischief this Father’s Day

To celebrate 70 years of Dennis, everyone’s favourite mischief-maker has teamed up with The
Book of Everyone to create a personalised book for dads.

ww_beano_thumb_6_002_This brilliant and beloved comic character has nurtured his own brand of wise(ish) wisdom that has kept us all playful and smiling for decades. After the last year, perhaps Dennis’s spirit is just the respite we need. Especially those dads who’ve been through so much. Reconnecting with your inner child is good for the soul and what kids adore about their dads.

Wise(ish) Words By Dennis is a personalised book that will have you chuckling from cover to cover. It’s full of stunning Beano illustrations all set to Dennis’s Wise(ish) Words on life.

Here’s a taster:

  • “Always give 100%. Unless you’re giving blood.”
  • “An apple a day keeps the doctor away. If you throw it hard enough.”
  • ‘If your kids laugh at your jokes, they’re looking for money.”
  • “Never grow up. It’s a trap!”



There’s a choice of quotes on every page that you can personalise should you wish. You can also add a dedication and a few photos to make it even more special.

Wise(ish) Words By Dennis is for Beano fans that grew up but never grew old. It’s a wonderful nostalgic throwback to the pea-shooting, whoopee-cushioning maverick in every childhood. Not to mention fatherhoods!

Mike Stirling, Editorial Director, Beano Studios comments: “Dennis has been sharing his words of wisdom in Beanotown for over 70 years, so he's very proud The Book of Everyone has captured his wisest and wittiest, just in time for Father’s Day. Mischief makers will love the way he's turned each quote representing a life lesson into a mini laugh session. It's a perfect gift for anyone you wish to treat on the occasion of Father's Day and definitely not just for dads. ”

Wise(ish) Words By Dennis is available in paperback, hardback and deluxe editions. The prices start at £20.
