Pippa Middleton’s book on party planning has been reduced to half price on Amazon less than a month after its release.

The sister of the Duchess of Cambridge has seen the cost of Celebrate cut from $39 to $19 after it fell to 189th on the bestseller list.

The 29-year-old brunette’s book, launched in London on October 25, is currently being outsold by a Tom Daley calendar and ‘The Highway Code’.

It aims to teach people how to throw parties for various occasions all year round and has been described on Amazon as a “fully illustrated and beautifully designed book packed with recipes, crafts and inspirational ideas”.

But some readers have slammed the party planner’s ideas, which include suggesting to play pass the parcel - a traditional party game - to entertain children. The book also states: “Turkeys are perfect for feeding larger gathering”.

One reviewer blasted: “You would think, with the amount of PR and media interest in the author of this book, that she might have written her book carefully, or perhaps even taken some expert advice. Seemingly, not so.

“For reasons best known to Miss Middleton, she has travelled the globe, shamelessly promoting an unbelievable pile of rubbish. The book is uninspiring, verging on insulting.”

The release of Pippa’s book has led to the creation of several online parodies including a Twitter account dedicated to “Pippa Middleton Tips”.
