I Hate Other People's Kids

By Adrianne Frost

  • Paperback
  • £6.99

So many kids to hate, so little time... This is a riotous romp through the horror of Other People's Kids

Oh, the blasmphemy! You're not supposed to hate children! They're adorable ... aren't they? Well, it's said that children are the greatest gift of all. But that doesn't mean you want to be seated next to one on a plane, does it? For the first time, Adrianne Frost lifts the lid on one of our last taboos, and reveals that not all kids are likeable. In fact some are positively crying out to be hated. In this hilarious handbook she guides you through all you need to know about hating Other People's Kids through history, categorising subspecies of brat and turning the tables on tearaways without appearing childish yourself. Learn to navigate kids in public places, and discover all the things parents like to think are cute about their kids, but are not. And what will you have learned when you come to the end of Frost's rant? That there's a lot more to hate than you first thought.

Miles Jupp

'A gloriously enjoyable read from start to finish' - Daily Express'Here's a book to savour' - Mail on SundayMiles Jupp (News Quiz presenter, star of Rev, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue and The Thick Of It) delves into the mind of his comedy creation Damien Trench - urbane food writer and protagonist of BBC Radio 4's acclaimed sitcom In and Out of the Kitchen. 'Are you Damien Trench?' said the lady operating the stall.'I might be,' I said to the lady.'You are though, aren't you?' she asked.'Well...yes,' I agreed. And that was that.She seized me by both hands, pulled me towards her, and launched into a passionate monologue that covered a selection of dessert recipes that I had once offered up in print, her difficult relationship with soft cheeses and her husband's irritable skin. So intense was her manner that it was extremely difficult to tell if she was scolding or praising me. All I knew was that she was staring so intently at me that I became worried that parts of me would dry up and just drop off like smoked chipotles. Also, her eyes were so extremely wide open that I began to worry that it might be dangerous to let so much light into your head. As soon as she stopped speaking, I thanked her for being willing to share, broke free from her grasp, panic-bought three punnets of raspberries on the way out and then sprinted back to the Uno as fast as fast can be.'Whether you're already a fan of Jupp's bumbling bon viveur, or are stumbling across him for the first time, here's a book to savour.'

In this book, Dr Elizabeth Kilbey will offer tangible, practical advice about how to 'unplug' your child from their device so their online time doesn't become all-consuming and how we, as parents, can plug in to connect with our children.
