Description: A riotous celebration of words and a modern take on cautionary tales - featuring advice on parrots, gravy, mathematics, castles (bouncy), spiders, vegetables (various), breakfast, cakes, and removing ducks from soup. Advice comes in many shapes. Poems come in many shapes. And so, it follows, poems of advice come in many shapes too. Sometimes they look you in the eye and say, 'Do this! Don't do that!' Sometimes they sidle up beside you and whisper, 'Have you ever thought about . ?' Not everything in this book is necessarily good advice, and not all of it is sensible advice. (But if you take the bad or un-sensible advice and don't follow it, then it may become useful advice in its own way.) Filled with colour illustrations and packed with silly rhymes, witty wordplay and thought-provoking story poems, this collection will delight children of all ages.

Review: I have been a fan of both AF Harrold and Mini Grey for a long time (I've read Traction Man at least 3,028 times in the last year) – so was VERY excited about this collaboration. The fabulous combination of words and illustration brings poetry to life in a way that we don't see enough in children's publishing. FINALLY, poetry is taken off the dreary brown page and injected with colour and humour and umph. Highly recommended.

  • Hodder & Stoughton Advice from Strangers

    Price: £8.50

    Brand: Hodder & Stoughton

     

    Description: Rachel was invited by her old secondary school to give a rousing speech to students at a key point in their young lives. To help her, she asked for advice from members of her live audience over the course of a year. In this book, each chapter is entitled with one of these pieces of advice - such as 'Be Kind' or 'Never Pass Up The Opportunity For A Wee' - which she explores in ways that are funny or serious, hilarious or heart-breaking. She reflects on what she's learnt in her own life, and looks at the advice we get and the advice we give. What helps us, as humans? What do we say, to help each other? Is it actually ever useful? This funny, moving and uplifting book advises on the essentials of living in the modern world; dealing with everything from Tampons to Tories and from #hashtags to Staying Hydrated.

    Price: £12.99

    Brand: HarperCollins Publishers Inc

     

    Description: Los Angeles Times #1 Bestseller USA Today Bestselling Book Over motivational messages? Sick AF of inspirational quotes? Done with the shiny happy bad advice that gets you nowhere? Well, heads up: you're about to get a shitload of Good Advice. In Bad Advice, relationship expert Dr. Venus Nicolino | ??a. k.a. Dr. V | ??takes a blowtorch to the shrink-wrapped, 'feel good" BS that passes for self-help these days. When you're heartbroken, what do you hear? You can't love anyone until you love yourself. When someone's hurt you? Nobody can make you feel bad without your permission. When you're just a little too positive? Expectations lead to disappointment. Pop culture noise gives Bad Advice the varnish of truthiness and inspiration. But it's not truth; it's not inspiration. It's bullshit. And at its root, all Bad Advice operates off the same lie: Emotions are optional. In Bad Advice, Dr. V delivers a bracing truth serum, in the form of Good Advice | ??an antidote to the bullshit, from 'Just Be Yourself" to 'Live Each Day Like It's Your Last," that teaches you to live your life in a way that honors who you are, what you need, and how you feel. Smart and irreverent, Dr. V fuses the brains and insight of a nerdy Ph. D. with the heart of a doting Italian Mother and the artful profanity of a Philly trucker. Dr. V's signature combination of humor, hard science, and heartmake Bad Advice an iconoclastic course-correction like no other. A fiercely sharp wake-up call that tackles some of self-help's most damaging truisms, Bad Advice is a never shy guide to tapping into your full potential.

    Description: Mans here to help you help yourself. Real talk. One thing you've got to know about advice: there are two types. Sometimes the people who give the most advice to others are the last people you should be listening to. They just love the sound of their own voice. No matter what the problem is, they'll just say: 'Believe in yourself, you can do anything.' And then. well, then there's the kind of advice that's just the truth. That's the sort of advice you might get from this book, and I'll warn you sometimes the truth ain't pretty. In these pages I'm gonna tell you some of my story and show you how you can change yours: how to survive school, how to get a job, how to deal with family, friends, love and PAIN. How to live your own life, not someone else's. Ebury Publishing How to Be Narstie - shop the best deal online on thebookbug.co.uk

    Description: From the author of the hit Men to Avoid in Art and Life and follow-up Friends to Keep in Art and Life comes Parenting Advice to Ignore in Art and Life, a collection of all-too-familiar unsolicited advice parents receive on the daily. From in-laws and other parents to complete strangers and even your own kids - when it comes to parenting, everyone's a critic. Against the classic backdrop of fine art, Tersigni's captions poke fun at the many experts who think they know more than you about your own children.
