The Ladybird Book of The Nerd (Ladybird for Grown-Ups)

by Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris
£7.99   hardback  Penguin Books Ltd (2017)

The Ladybird Book of The Nerd (Ladybird for Grown-Ups) by Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris 'This is a nerd.
He has a PhD and works in the biochemistry lab of a university hospital.
But this is not what makes him a nerd.
His catalogued and indexed collection of over 6,000 empty crisp packets does that.'
'These nerds have paid money to see a film they think is terrible and have seen at least thirty times before.
They are having the most fun they can possibly have.'

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.
