Ladybird Books

Ladybird Books

Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris are the comedy writers that spearheaded the satirical favourites for grown ups such as The Ladybird Book of The Mid-Life Crisis, The Ladybird Book of The Hipster and The Ladybird Book of The Hangover which have been cheekily bought and exchanged as presents for ageing adults since their initial release 2 years ago.  They joined Dave from London to tell us about the 11 new titles in the series...

Later on in the programme we were contacted by Mo Glover; Mo's two children were the inspiration for the original Ladybird Book characters Peter and Jane as they were next door neighbours to the illustrator Harry Wingfield.
