The Lovereading4Kids comment
Irresistible for all mums who’ll bask in the warm glow that comes from Anthony Browne’s loving celebration of the many wonderful things that mother’s do. With his familiar wit, Anthony Browne shows how women juggle the many things in their lives, how they be can strong and soft as well as comfortable and beautiful. There’s something to enjoy for every mum in here.
My Mum by Anthony Browne
This impressive Super Mum is so robust and so uncloying that the tugs of love pull hard, strong and irresistibly. This Mum can do many things. Some are traditional and familiar – she’s a fantastic cook, she’s strong, soft, tough, and could be anything – but in the illustrations, while still recognisable, they are also given great originality. Comfortable Mum is the armchair itself, only the fluffy slippers instead of chair feet give the reader clues. Most Mums will identify best with homely-looking Mum described as ‘a brilliant juggler’ tossing traditional balls, and also calmly controlling the house, car, handbag, teapot and teddy in the arc above her head.
The perfect book for all mums! A brilliant follow-up to the bestselling MY DAD.
