Daniel Foxx Debut Book Bedtime Stories for Privileged Children Announced

Off The Kerb is delighted to announce that Monoray, part of the Octopus Publishing Group, has acquired Bedtime Stories for Privileged Children by Daniel Foxx, which will be published in September 2024.

Author and comedian Daniel Foxx presents a collection of stories especially for the little darlings of the fabulously wealthy – that can also be enjoyed by YOU, the downtrodden, pitiful, ordinary adult! Read about the everyday adventures of Rupert, Shallotte and Genevievette as they ski, holiday, and drift around Selfridges – whilst always keeping a healthy distance from the dreaded hoi polloi!

Daniel Foxx is an award-winning comedian and writer from London. His easy-going delivery and sharp jokes have quickly established him as one of the most exciting new acts on the UK comedy circuit, whilst his comedy sketch videos have earned him a huge online following and millions of views. Foxx has over half a million followers across Instagram and TikTok, where – among other skits – he reads bedtime stories about the decadent extravagance of the rich and privileged straight to camera. Bedtime Stories for Privileged Children will be based on the TikTok videos of the same name and half of the stories for the book will be completely original.

‘Daniel’s bedtime stories are wickedly funny and perfectly satire the conspicuous consumerism of the world in which we live. You laugh at the children and their horrible families one moment – and then cringe in self-recognition the next,’ said Jake Lingwood of the acquisition. ‘I think this is by far the funniest book of the year and definitely the most zeitgeisty – and we’re thrilled to publish it on Monoray.’

‘I can’t take much credit for this, because these stories came to me almost fully formed when I sat in my local bougie cafe and listened to the yummy mummies and delicious daddies discussing their luxury offspring. I was compelled to note down some of the most ridiculous children’s names I’ve ever heard, along with some truly wild anecdotes, and a few years later, here we are,’ said Daniel.

‘I’m utterly delighted to finally release my Bedtime Stories to the world – or at least, the sophisticated parts of the world,’ continued Foxx. ‘For too long, the children of oil magnates and tech billionaires have been neglected in night-time literature.’

Bedtime Stories for Privileged Children by Daniel Foxx will be published by Monoray in September, 2024 at £14.99 in hardback, with black and white illustrations throughout.
