How it Works: The Student
This is a student.
He is leaving home for the first time.
By the time he graduates, he will be grown-up: exhausted, hideously in debt and unable to imagine going to bed sober.
Reynard has brought everything he needs for his first year.
He unpacks his fancy-dress costumes, his four-way extension leads, his pair of pants and all his didgeridoos.
By doing front, back, inside-out front, inside-out back, and using Febreze and Imodium, he plans to make his pants last until half term.
This delightful book is part of a 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
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 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.
