    I'm not entirely sure.

    Why wouldn't you buy this as a joke for new parents? 4 quid just to watch them open it is a deal.

    If I find myself in Secret Santa this year...

    The reviews are all one star reviews.

    If they were five star reviews then you would get worried especially as you can look inside the book and see that it matches the one star reviews.

    And why would you buy it for a child
    "Both my sister in law and I had high expectations for this book. Bought it for my 6yo and 2yo. Quite honestly, it was disappointing. Returned it. "

    All seems very ageist! Us old farts should have courses in wokeness, I'll suggest it to the U3A.

    PS Long time ago but seem to recall us hippies were rather woke too. About war, capitalism etc. Think it is just an age thing.

    Oh no, it's sold out. I would love to buy a copy as a joke present, if the book is as the blurb suggests.
