Ladybird books - Famous Five on Brexit, The Meeting

Posted on

Did you read any of Enid Blyton's "Famous Five" books when you were a child?  The tales of George, Anne, Dick, Julian and Timmy the dog will resound in many minds, with all sorts of adventure tales involving Kirrin Island.

Well, Ladybird Books have introduced a category of books just for grown-ups.   Currently one of their best sellers focuses on Brexit - will the famous five survive the test of Brexit?  Personally I found this book was very funny and it makes a great stocking filler or Secret Santa gift, or a table gift at Christmas time which is a bit different.

Five on Brexit Island (Enid Blyton for Grown Ups) - from Amazon

Another one I found myself laughing aloud at in the book shop was The Ladybird Book of the Meeting (Ladybirds for Grown-Ups) - from Amazon .   It brings back many memories and I recognised a great many scenarios in the book.  This is a very fast read - it won't take long - but I am still chuckling over some of the things in the book, and no doubt next time I'm in a very dull meeting, I will remember it then.  Another table gift, Secret Santa or stocking filler. 

Go on - give someone a chuckle this Christmas!
