The Demolition Dad author has nailed his comedic choices down to five, which come in the form of books, a poetry collection and a graphic novel.

Amongst his choices, Phil has chosen a story about eyebrows that go on their own adventure and 'the greatest middle grade hero ever.'

Phil also selects a book that enables readers to put on great comedy voices as well as a tale filled with 'wonderful, yet awful' puns.

Watch the vlog to find out what his top five are.
