The only book you will ever need to read by Australia's best-loved marsupial-based cartoonist Join beloved cartoonist First Dog On the Moon in this tender frolic through the looming collapse of civilisation and the demise of everything you ever cared about. Never have so many worked so hard to bring about the end of life as we know it, but what to wear? When Armageddon arrives, will it still be okay to walk around in your underpants?

Full of handy tips on what to pack, where to go and how to wave a cricket bat menacingly when interlopers try to steal the family pets that you were saving for dinner, this gentle book is fun for all the family.

If you don't buy it, you will probably be eaten by an enormous mutant Nazi tapeworm the size of a school bus. So when the 'SHTF', don't say we didn't warn you, and don't come to the First Dog On the Moon Institute bunker, because there isn't one, it is a secret.

About the Author

First Dog on the Moon lives in Melbourne and is having a lovely time being the cartoonist of choice at The Guardian, holding the nation to account and generally being adorable. A Walkley Award winner and national treasure, he is Australia's only marsupial-based cartoonist.


It was a sudden purchase but it arrived for Xmas no problems


I can always find a book on Booktopia either for me or a present for someone else.

Wonderfully entertaining and thought provoking.


Funny, sad, useful, informative and entertaining. Written with honesty, sensitivity, wit and charm. This is a lovely book about the nature of things, humanity and the end of the world. I took about a week to read it but I'm a slow reader and probably spent too much time looking at the pictures. I loved it. This is very First Dog but more so.
