The Ladybird Book of the Hangover by Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris


Ladybird’s series of satirical books for adults is brilliant, and this is probably my favourite of the lot. For anyone who has ever suffered a mind-blowing hangover, most of this book will jog some flashbacks. It’s funny because it is hilariously accurate, for example:

“Some hangover symptoms are caused by impurities which enter the body along with the alcohol. These impurities can include methanol, acetone, acetaldehyde, esters, tannins, grab bags of Wotsits, railway-grade pasties and KFC Zinger Tower Burgers.”

A very quick read, and written in the style of the traditional Ladybird storybooks, this is a highly entertaining grown up version. I highly recommend this book for anyone in need of a good laugh, or who’s currently in the throes of a hangover and needs reassurance that they are not the only person who has felt like this.
