Ladybird books for Grown-Ups

with Ian Davidson

  • Joel Morris & Jason Hazeley

  • Ian Davidson

When the first Ladybird books for Grown-Ups were published in 2015, no-one predicted that a pastiche of Sixties and Seventies simple reading books for children would become a publishing phenomenon. This comedy duo, who write for Mitchell & Webb, Charlie Brooker and Miranda Hart, have hit on a formula that seems set to run and run. Everyday problems from hangovers to mid-life crises, from meetings to writing a ‘sickie’ are specially presented to help grown-ups cope with the world about them.  

The writing duo will discuss the art of pastiche with fellow scriptwriter and local resident, Ian Davidson.  Ian got his first writing credit on TW3, was script editor for The Two Ronnies and wrote for Barry Humphries for fifty years.  In Monty Python he was the Dead Red Indian on a pile of dung.
