Synopsis

Your Mum by Roy Apps

This super silly book is here to 'help' children with all mum-related problems (so add it to the basket quick, before your mum spots it in her order, erhem!) Inside you'll find highly expert* advice, from identifying mum 'types' to solving mum problems, how to identify super-mum powers and, of course, how to defend yourself against them. This hilarious handbook helps you to train your mum - frankly, before it's too late - and has some cool quizzes to test your mum-handling skills. WARNING: contains daft material that kids might actually enjoy reading. Perfect for readers aged 7+. *Written by a BAFTA award winning author, Roy Apps, and illustrated by Nick Sharratt - winner of the Nestle Book Award.
