How It Works: The Baby
A Ladybird Book
THE PERFECT GIFT for those deluded fools who are expecting a little miracle . . .
Allyce is taking Rainbeau to a local mother-and-baby group. It takes her forty five minutes to pack the bag with the change mat, nappies, wipes, nappy bags Sudocrem, milk, muslins, teething powders, rice cakes, bibs, Calpol, spare clothes, dummy, first aid kit, Mr Bun-Bun and hand gel.
The playgroup is two minutes away.
The hospital follows Jasmine's birth plan so she can have a drug-free delivery.
'I am glad it was all natural,' shouts Jasmine over the hissing and beeping and clanking and the hum of the lights.
This delightful book is the latest in the series of Ladybird books which have been specially planned to help grown-ups with the world about them.
The large clear script, the careful choice of words, the frequent repetition and the thoughtful matching of text with pictures all enable grown-ups to think they have taught themselves to cope. Featuring original Ladybird artwork alongside brilliantly funny, brand new text.
Jason Hazeley & Joel Morris are the award-winning authors of the bestselling Ladybird Books For Grown-Ups series.
They write for Charlie Brooker's BAFTA award-winning Wipe shows, and co-wrote Cunk on Shakespeare, Cunk on Christmas and Cunk on Britain. They have also written for the award-winning Murder in Successville, the award-winning Miranda, the award-winning Mitchell & Webb, the award-winning Armstrong & Miller and a long list of shows and people both award-winning and so-far-award-avoiding.
They created and wrote the critically lauded but as yet un-awarded Ångström for BBC Radio 4, and helped write both the award-winning Paddington movies. They are co-creators of spoof local newspaper The Framley Examiner (awards pending) and the bestselling but still-waiting-to-be-award-winning offbeat travel guides Bollocks to Alton Towers and Far from the Sodding Crowd.
They present the podcast Rule of Three (Guardian Guide Best 50 Podcasts 2018 - is that an award?) and divide their time between their office, where they keep their awards, and an award-winning pub.
