Description

THE PERFECT STOCKING FILLER for people who value friendship, uncompromising love, dribble, chewed up furniture and miles and miles of walking to go to the toilet.__________________________________'The dog is often called a man's best friend.Dogs are reliable, loyal and loving, like all best friends.They also smell like a bobble hat full of corned beef that has been left on a parcel shelf of a locked car for a fortnight during a hot spell. But there are some things you don't mention to a best friend.'__________________________________'Once a week, Patsy vacuums up all the dog hair in her house.When she has finished the sofa she will do the carpets, inside the oven, in the powder tray of the washing machine, between the pages of the book she is reading, and behind the wallpaper.'How did it get there?' laughs Patsy while coughing up a hair-ball.'__________________________________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.
