Who remembers Ladybird books?

We sure do! Though we’ll be the first to say, The Shed is not your mother’s Ladybird book. This wonderfully delightful and amusing book outlines how to ‘adult’ with the best of them. It will convince you that, yes, you are an adult and, yes, you are somehow coping with it.

Like many men, coping with adult life often relies on hiding away from the world. Virginia Woolf once posited that a woman needs a room of her own to write. Well, a man needs a shed of his own to live! It’s in a shed that a man can be himself, work on projects, and pass the time by reading. That’s why we offer so many wonderful book gifts for men.
