The Middle Class ABC is the book loos, bedside tables and farmers markets the length and breadth of the land have been waiting for - a humorous celebration of the facts (some are even true) and foibles, manners and mores, peccadilloes and armadillos, of contemporary British middle-class life.

Letter by letter, the occasionally clever, witty and absurd observations and cartoons will ring true for all good Middlings. WARNING: you might even recognize your own or your friends' choices of children's names, foodie fads, holiday destinations . . .

Crammed with affectionately teasing jokes and some truly dreadful puns, this is a book to enjoy at any time of the year in the course of going about one's business.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Guaranteed to make one chortle * Daily Mail *
I never ever do jacket puffs. Even for indispensable and entirely charming books. I never make an exception. Except this one * Stephen Fry *
A hilarious ramble through middle England * House and Garden *
Glorious compendium . . . pins the modern middle class with brilliant and hysterical accuracy * Daily Mail *
The night before I had been reading The Middle Class ABC by Fi Cotter-Craig and Zebedee Helm and chortling at how accurately they skewered so many aspects of my life, from compulsive jam-making to fanatical dish washer loading and vegetable growing * Janet Street Porter, Daily Mail *
Cringe-makingly and consistently funny. The best toilet, I mean loo, book ever * Rachel Johnson, Evening Standard *
Teasingly brilliant ABC that celebrates being middle class . . . You will chortle with gusto at these wry observations * Field *
The first time my wife and I read The Middle Class ABC, flicking through the pages as we lay in bed, we ended up galloping through the entire book, increasingly desperate to identify one major characteristic of our lifestyle that hadn't been expertly lampooned and made gloriously funny by the two geniuses who compiled, created and illustrated it * Country Life *
