Well it's not 12th night yet so I thought I would read one more christmas book.

Boxing Day is the latest in the The Ladybird books for grownups series.

'There are two important days at Christmas. There is Christmas Day when everyone is jolly and hungry and very pleased to see each each other. And there is Boxing Day....'

Bought for my American fiance after trying and failing to explain the concept for the 52nd time.

Alas, it didnt work on the 53rd. But I enjoyed it anyway! A strange mix of the type of illustrations beloved of my childhood juxtoposed against distinctly adult themes. What DID that lady do with the office projector that meant that she took herself off to a nunnery? My mind boggles and England demands to know!

Recommends it for: Readers who enjoy quick reads, mild humour and vintage illustration.
Recommended to Hilary by: Found at the library
3.5 stars rounded up because I love the vintage ladybird illustrations and the idea of the 'funny' text.

A look at Boxing Day - over eating, family games, relatives you can't stand and pantomimes. All good festive fun.

I'm really cheating now but I'm desperate.
I refuse to start giving Ladybird books a star rating though.

I got this book as part of a Christmas gift. It's funny stuff and a quick read. Highly entertaining -- the description of Boxing Day is truer than most would want to believe!

A funny, well written and well illustrated Ladybird book which is good for the festive season and would make a good coffee table book for the festive period.

Mildly amusing but a bit thin and shockingly overpriced.

Found this whilst tidying up and it made me smile. So much in here reminds me of our family Christmas especially the page talking about dessert! Most of yesterday is finished but there's still a trifle, a pavlova, eclair, jelly, mince pies,....
Love the references to all the British tropes of Boxing Day, perfectly combined with art from old editions.
