A hilarious, brand new book in the phenomenal ladybirds for grown-ups series for Autumn 2018

Being in the European Union is terribly complicated. Leaving it is terribly complicated too. Luckily the choice on the ballot paper didn’t look very complicated at all. It was something about the freedom of bananas.

Confused about currency? Baffled by borders? Perturbed about passports?

If Britain’s exit from the EU has you scratching your head in befuddlement then turn to the Ladybird Story of Brexit – a simply digested breakdown of everything you need to know, from bestselling authors Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris.

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.

Do you ever find yourself longing for a simpler time? That time before the horrors of speed-bumps, automated supermarket checkouts and infernal switchboard options; the days when telephones had wires and a reassuring rotating dial, a tweet meant birdsong and Brexit might possibly have meant a new kind of breakfast cereal?

Fear not, for you are not alone. What you need are the new manuals for our times, simple primers for the everyday predicaments we find ourselves in.

Dear friend, what you need is a Ladybird.

Part of the Ladybird Books for Grown Ups series.

Hits the nail on the head!
It’s sad that it takes satire like this to spell out what extreme and egotistical extreme Brexiteers can’t or won’t see. It outdoor be funny if it wasn’t ... READ MORE
