ISIS specialises in unabridged recordings of books and has a wide range of genres available. The Little Sod Diaries consist of three sections: How t o Be a Little Sod - The First Joyful Year. (You have got to be kidding.)- When bundle of joy enters the world the problems begin, as the little sod goes through its first year of life it just causes more and more problems using tricks like emotional blackmail and unpleasant nappies to get its own way. Well at least it s new mobile will keep it quiet, or will it? Look Who's Walking - The Second Year of the Innocent Child. (Innocent? Yeah Right! Pull the other one) - Destruction at speed, as the little sod gets bigger, faster and it really begins to get the hang of this talking his range on torment increases and with Mum planning to go back to work who will have to look after the little sod. Not Another Little Sod - The Third Year and Once the New Baby Comes They Will Be Such Friends. (Not if they have anything to do with it.) - Yes, you guessed it there is another baby on the way so this book come with 'Voice from the womb' as the developing baby tries to stop its boredom "Too and fro, too and fro, and kick and another kick."

Just wait for the little sods stage debut in the christmas play. A total of six tapes or approximately nine hours of mayhem as the parents are put through three years of living hell and mental anguish. Does It Sound Familiar?
