How it WorksThis delightful book is the latest in the series of Ladybird books which have been specially planned to help grown ups with the world about themThe large clear script the careful choice of words the freuent repetition and the thought. Like most Brits of my age Ladybird books were a staple of my childhood and I still have many at home inexpensive varied subjects fiction history science general knowledge different reading levels hard covered and conveniently small Another reason for their success and enduring popularity is the distinctive font and style of illustration “ The authors would like to thank the illustrators whose work they have so mercilessly ribbed and whose glorious craftsmanship was the set dressing of their childhoods The inspiration they sparked has never faded” However modern children are unlikely to find them appealing so Penguin Books commissioned humorous new titles for adults but using artwork from the original children’s books Titles include The Shed The Hipster Mindfulness The Meeting and The Zombie Apocalypse See list hereThese spoofs have been so successful there are spoofs of the spoofs which are far better than this See Dungbeetle’s We Go To The Gallery which I reviewed HEREI think these Ladybirds will only appeal to those who want to indulge and gently prod fond childhood memories and I doubt many would want to read than a handful I think two is my limit The titles and concept are fun than the content except for some of the small print The exception is A Ladybird Book About Donald Trump my review HEREStereotype AlertAll the humour in the Husband and Wife books is based on the sort of gently demeaning stereotypes of men and women that were common when the pictures were drawn when mother in law jokes and Benny Hill were all the rage Not so zeitgeisty now what was once mainstream now feels easy but risky If you read just one of the books in this pair you might splutter in indignation but reading them together I saw the balance and smiled a little in recognition and especially at how far most of society has moved on since I was a childThere are two illustrations that appear in both books but with different words Here’s oneThe HusbandI’m not sure what to make of the fact my father and his partner gave me this as a stocking filler at ChristmasYou can guess the gist a husband just needs sausages beer and time to indulge hobbies like watching sport He doesn’t care about his clothes finds it difficult to express his feelings and rarely listens to let alone remembers what his wife says I’m not offended but I don’t find that funnyAlthough these are adult books there’s no explicit mention of sex This caption was presumably inspired by his awkward pose in the original illustrationI was also amused to recognise one of the illustrations It’s of a Scotsman in a kilt coming into a house bearing a piece of coal He’s first footing and it was in a Ladybird book about traditional customs around the UK possibly Stories of Special Days and Customs The WifeWives need wine and chocolate to cope with husbands and children Well I don’t like chocolate and I prefer gin to wine but wine will do And friends yes and shopping not so much Hints about sex are even vaguer and euphemistic in this than The Husband And not sufficient to raise a smileSpoiler alert
