Ladybird helps you understand a mid-life crisis and how to make it out alive
Your chosen name appears on the cover
Write a special message on the title page
Features original Ladybird artwork
Written in Ladybird’s large clear script
Available as a hardback and measures 12.6 x 17.8cm
When we’re young and plump, we tend to dream of becoming actors, neurosurgeons perhaps, anything is possible. And then, one day, it isn’t. This personalised Ladybird book identifies this foreshadowing as a ‘mid-life crisis’. They’re inevitable. Face it. Better yet, why not gift someone with this vintage Ladybird book to help them get through their mid-life crisis in one piece?
Bounding with page upon page of original Ladybird artwork, the book mimic’s Ladybird’s iconic, large clear script and easy to read format (and, the individual probably needs easy during such a trying time). With the individual’s name on the cover and a message on the inside page, they’ll be armed and ready (maybe a bit saggier than their younger self) to handle a full-fledged mid-life crisis.
How to Personalise
Personalise with any name up to 12 characters which will appear on the cover of the book. Add a message of 2 lines, up to 40 characters per line which will appear on the opening page. Check your personalisation: accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated.

Great present for a friends 40th birthday. Arrived promptly. Many thanks.
Bought this as a mid-40's birthday present for my brother. Had to throw it in the bin. While the premise was amusing in the pictures it showed in the advert - the detail in the book is pretty horrific - it suggests that the named individual would like to kill themselves, but they are so incompetent they probably wouldn't get it right, they get divorced, made redundant and their life is lonely and depressing.Not the funny birthday present I was hoping for.
Easy to order online, quite straightforward.
