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.
Whether it’s a gift for a colleague you’ve barely uttered a word to or for Great Auntie what’s-her-name you only see once a year, there’s nothing quite like the annual public humiliation of a Secret Santa. But fear not – one of these stocking-sized books are guaranteed to get a nod of approval, whoever's name it is you pulled out of a hat.
