BOOK REVIEW: The fabulously funny Dawn French returns to the stage with a her first non-fiction book.

DAWN French has written a new, non-fiction book.

The reader and Dawn will spend a year together rambling through the days, the months and the seasons of the year to make sense of it.

And have some fun along the way . . .

"Feel free to write your appointments in it, lists, thoughts and reminders of, say, who to kill, and when, and in what order," French writes.

"But I've also written about age and life as I see it, through the seasons and the months, and I've added some places for you to join me in some fun and some thinking.

"By the end of the year, I am hoping you will have a fatter, scruffier book that is written by me but totally personalised by you.

"Come on in. The paper is lovely . . . AND . . . importantly, Me. You: A Diary comes with a practical elastic strap to keep all of your papers safe, with a pocket in the back for storing those special momentoes."

Published by Penguin Books, Me. You: A Diary is released this month and in bookshops and online. RRP $39.99.
