Product description

About the Author

Lee and Adam Parkinson are two brothers from Manchester who work in primary education. Together in 2018, they set up the hugely successful Two Mr Ps in a Pod(cast), sharing light-hearted and hilarious tales from the classroom and reminiscing on their own school days. The podcast has since amassed over 3 million listens with sold-out live shows across the UK. Put A Wet Paper Towel on It is their first book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cried with laughter
By Bae on 19 August 2021
Have been waiting impatiently for this to arrive and was so pleased when it was delivered yesterday. I’ve not been able to put it down and have been crying with laughter so loudly my husband came to check I was ok. As a Primary School Teacher every page resonates, but as a parent this book would also appeal. Both Mr Ps are brilliant with their witty banter. Definitely 5 stars but would give it 20 if I could. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read! Definitely a coffee table book
By Mrs Nicola Hatton on 19 August 2021
I pre ordered this book ready for release because it sounded like my sort of thing and I had started following the two mr p’s during lockdown. As a parent of four children and a keen interest in education I hoped I would enjoy the book and boy do I!! At a glance I have read a small section about Ofsted and a great chat about acronyms in education settings! This book will make anyone chuckle and not only that but it’s actually relatable. It’s definitely a coffee table book, a conversation starter and most definitely a great book to have in the staff room! Recommend this to anybody who’s interested in a inside look of being a teacher or being in education.
