The Lovereading4Kids comment

Mums everywhere have a soft spot for Mrs Large, recognising so many of their own experiences in Jill Murphy’s character. Here Mr Large nobly steps up when his wife is feeling under the weather, giving her a much-needed day in bed. But a series of crashes from downstairs, and the appearance at her bedside of various small members of her family to explain what caused them, mean that poor Mrs Large has hardly a minute’s peace all day. It’s another beautifully observed slice of family life, Mrs Large’s facial expressions in particular are a delight and the final image of the whole family sprawled out fast asleep on her bed will make everyone smile. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Mr Large in Charge by Jill Murphy

If you are not familiar with these stories, you really have not lived ...you just couldn't get better Guardian The perfect Father's Day gift and hilarious tale of family life, this is a beautiful new edition of a modern picture book classic in the Large family series. Mrs Large isn't feeling too good. So Mr Large sends her back to bed. I'll take charge, he says. Mrs Large settles down for a nice rest while Mr Large and the children get busy hoovering, dusting and tidying. But Mrs Large's day doesn't turn out to be quite as restful as she had first hoped!

With a foreword and gorgeous foil lettering on the cover and spine, this is a beautiful book to treasure.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
