The Ladybird Book of the Sickie Hardback

Part of the Ladybirds for Grown-Ups series



The perfect companion for those extremely hardworking colleagues, who like to pull sickies . . . 'Lawrence and Ben are enjoying a bout of imaginary food poisoning. Food poisoning is always good because it's over quickly and nobody likes to hear stories about toilets.'__________'When Jesse gets home from a very big party, he phones his manager and leaves a message.

Now he does not have to get up early to call in sick. 'Calling the office at 3:07am is exactly what someone with a real cold would do,' Jesse thinks to himself as he falls asleep on his stairs with a kebab for a pillow.'__________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' StylistExplore other essential life companions in the Ladybird Books of The Red Tape, The Meeting, The Zombie Apocalypse, and more.
