Description

THE PERFECT GIFT for the Do-Gooder in your life. (Don't you just hate them?) _________________________________________________ The do-gooder does all sorts of crazy things. It can be something as easy as running a marathon, or as difficult as dressing up. To make this eccentric behaviour seem less like a cry for help or the beginnings of a substantial personal crisis, the do-gooder does it for charity. _________________________________________________ Vernon has a job as a street fundraiser for the R.N.L.I. He wears a high-visibility jacket, a high visibility and high visibility trousers. Everybody on the street still pretends they cannot see him. _________________________________________________ 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. 'Hilarious' Stylist

They write for Charlie Brooker's BAFTA award-winning Wipe shows, and co-wrote Cunk On Shakespeare, Cunk On Christmas and Cunk on Britain. They have also written for the award-winning Murder in Successville, the award-winning Miranda, the award-winning Mitchell & Webb, the award-winning Armstrong & Miller and a long list of shows and people both award-winning and so-far-award-avoiding. They created and wrote the critically lauded but as yet un-awarded Angstroem for BBC Radio 4, and helped write both the award-winning Paddington movies. They are co-creators of spoof local newspaper The Framley Examiner (awards pending) and the the bestselling but still-waiting-to-be-award-winning offbeat travel guides Bollocks to Alton Towers and Far From The Sodding Crowd. They present the podcast Rule of Three (Guardian Guide Best 50 Podcasts 2018 - is that an award?) and divide their time between their office, where they keep their awards, and an award-winning pub.
