    'After the success of their ingenious idea of matching pictures from Ladybird's archive with prose that mocks the mores of modern life, they are bowing out with a bang with this compendium' - Sunday Telegraph

    From the people who gave you classics such as The Ladybird Book of The Hangover and The Ladybird Book of The Mid-Life Crisis, they bring you this collection of what could have been. Imagine a world where there aren't just the thirty-two Ladybird Books for Grown-Ups you've seen in your local bookshop or downstairs toilet but hundreds and hundreds more . . .

    In this coffee-table book you don't have to, with never before seen covers, excerpts and paraphernalia from the archives, colourfully presented and helpfully divided into the following chapters:

    - Fun & Games
    - Adventure
    - The World Around Us
    - At Work
    - At Home
    - Coping
    - Not Coping
    - Giving Up

    'These books are small masterpieces. They make me glad I learned to read.' David Quantick

    'HILARIOUS. Beserkly brilliant.' Mel Giedroyc
