The Dad A Ladybird Personalised Book. Perfect for Father's Day, if your mum has a funny bone. Written in the style of the children's books we all loved, this delightful little book has a wicked sense of humour. Clear text and repetition gives the tone of a children's book, but the content highlights stereotype of how adults cope (or don't cope) with married life. Featuring original Ladybird artwork alongside brilliantly funny, brand new text this cheeky book shows the inner workings of a wife. With her name on the cover and opening pages, along with a personal message.

As the book explains, “The husband likes to do simple repairs, like changing the washer on a tap. Afterwards, he likes to talk at great length about what a struggle it was.” Featuring Ladybird artwork alongside laugh-out-loud, clear text, it’s the ultimate novelty gift for any hubby. After all, husbands, as the book points out, run on sausages and beer, right? Of course, there are many more classic Ladybird Books just waiting to be personalised

Personalise the book with Any Name of up to 12 characters which will appear on the cover.  Include a Message of up to 80 characters over 2 lines which will appear on the opening title page. Your Personalised Ladybird Dad Book measures 12.6 x 17.8cm (L x W)
