But, more recently, Ladybird has published books for adults with more tongue-in-cheek subjects like hangovers and hipsters. And now, the series is looking to shift to hard sciences.

Prince Charles' book on climate change is said to be the first Ladybird book to be peer-reviewed by scientists, but others have accused the royal of politicizing the issue.

The book is set to be released Jan. 26.
