Description

The PERFECT STOCKING FILLER for Mum would be to let her take the day off while you do everything for her. Why not get her this book instead?

----------------

This is mum.

A mum has two very important jobs to do. One is to look after her children.

The other is to do everything else as well.

----------------

Now Lyndsay's little boy is at nursery, she is looking for a job.

At this interview, the lady asks Lyndsay all sorts of questions, which Lyndsay has trouble answering because she has the Octonauts theme going round her head.

Lyndsay hopes she is not singing out loud.

----------------

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.

About Jason Hazeley

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 Angstroem 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 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.

This is their fortieth book.
