How it Works: The Wife

Jason Hazeley, Joel Morris

The PERFECT STOCKING FILLER for your long-suffering wife or prospective bride. Or, for any fool of a husband or seriously deluded groom-to-be who hasn't yet understood what he's signed up for.

Tina is getting married. It is the best day of her life.

Next year, she will claim that becoming a mother was the best day of her life, but only because she was on some very strong drugs.

Neither is true. The best day of her life was on her eighth birthday, when she got a yellow bike.

The wife likes surprises.

Her favourite sort is a surprise birthday party.

It is the husband's job to organise this surprise for her, and to keep her informed of every detail about it.

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.
