Synopsis

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.

About the Publisher

Michael Joseph

The first ten paperback Penguin books appeared in 1935 costing 6d each (the price of a packet of cigarettes). Since then the Penguin list has developed enormously, but still aims to bring the best writing to the widest possible audience. Penguin Paperbacks now range from Booker Prize-winning contemporary authors, to mass market bestsellers, with successful history, biography and general non-fiction as well.
