Synopsis

Mum's the Word by Timothy Knapman, Jamie Littler

A funny rhyming tale with adorable illustrations showing the importance of a mother's love. When a little dog tries to find the word that feels like a cuddle and is as warm as a goodnight kiss, he discovers that the word is... Mum! Forget the flowers, this is the perfect way to say 'I love you' on Mother's Day.
