Yes, that’s right, after the success of the Ladybird book range and the more recent updates of Enid Blyton, you can now get some I-Spy For Grown Ups books, which are published by Harper Collins.
It’s a similar path to those previous editions, albeit with an ‘I-Spy’ twist.
Take your pick from I-SPY THE UK: While It Lasts, I-SPY AT THE SCHOOL GATE: My Mum’s Better Than Your Mum, I-SPY SIGNS AND INSTRUCTIONS: You Must Obey or I-SPY PETS: When Human Friendship Is Not Enough. Yes, you get the idea.
Each one is the work of Sam Jordison and as we said, follows the classic ‘I-Spy’ format of playing the ‘I spy with my little eye’. But this time it isn’t tedious stuff, it’s a less-than-serious, rather cutting take on modern life instead. If you know anyone interested in the subjects above, one of these books just might make the perfect Christmas gift. It might give someone a new spying hobby after Christmas too.
Like the Enid Blyton books, these also have price on their side, should you be thinking of them as potential presents. Just £3.99 each in fact.
