In October 2015, it was announced that Morris had co-written a series of Ladybird books for adults with Jason Hazeley. The eight books, which parody the style of the company’s classic books for children, re-caption original illustrations from the Ladybird series with new text, offering sardonic commentary on many areas of modern life. The initial run included titles such as The Hangover, Mindfulness, Dating and The Hipster and were published on 18 November 2015.[4]
