Press Release: April 13, 2010
‘Shadybird Policeman Book Viral’ writer creates exclusively for adultswim.co.uk
We're guessing you know your way around the internet. Chances are, you've stumbled upon the viral of the 'Ladybird Policeman' book. It was massive about two years ago. We got sent it for the umpteenth time recently, from a guy who we used to work with in London, who got it from a lawyer he knows in New York, who got it from a mate in the Antipodes. So far, so global village. We were feeling generous/workshy, so we sent it on to a few people we thought could do with a laugh. Turns out one of those people was the original author.
Now, this celebrity-gangster ghostwriter-cum-original-Loaded-Magazine writer is making more of these cheeky updated children’s books EXCLUSIVELY FOR ADULT SWIM.
The adultswim.co.uk Shadybird series kicks off on the Blog with a selection of EXCLUSIVE 'Shady Extra' pages from the original book never seen before. Actually, one of them has already been published, but he insisted we include it in this piece as "there's a spelling mistake on the original". Expect more full-length Shadybird Books in the coming weeks.
