Review: When the Ladybird Books For Grown-Ups first appeared I loved them, but I confess that after the first couple of batches they started to lose their appeal, and I stopped buying them beyond the first ten or so. When I heard that they were bringing this final book out I wasn't that bothered about it as I thought it might just be a compilation, but when I read the description and actually saw the book in a shop I decided to buy it. Thankfully, it's an absolute treat. From the beginning of the series, one of my favourite things about the books appeared on the back cover of each - a list of fictitious other books in the series, many of which produced belly-laughs which the actual books themselves failed to bring. This book - a large, thick hardback - is essentially a compilation of the covers of Ladybird Books For Grown-Ups that didn't actually appear, but many have fake interior pages too, and there are spoof letters between an author and Ladybird scattered through the text, along with some passages of text explaining aspects of each of the books. It's hugely enjoyable, and the sort of book that if you're reading it in the same room as other people you'll inevitably end up showing pages to them on a regular basis. I absolutely loved this book, and it seems as though they've saved the best Ladybird Book For Grown-Ups until last.

Review: I'm such a fan of Ladybird Books for grown-ups I guess I dislike any deviation from the hand-held form. This felt like a cheat to me, just a collection of covers and a few inner pages, and lots of running gags that fell flat. But I just moved to London 2 months ago; I'll set this on a shelf and re-read in a couple years and maybe probably more of it will make sense and be funny to me then? But still, I'd much rather they continue making little hand-held books of funny forever.
