My Mum and Dad by Andrew Lindsay


My Mum and Dad by Andrew Lindsay

When we stay up late and talk in the dark we always talk about Mum and Dad. The mysteries of a happy marriage, as seen through the innocent eyes of a child. Andrew Lindsay's book is a funny, wide-eyed, occasionally mischievous and ultimately touching tribute to parental love, in its many forms. Mum says that when she first saw Dad her heart stopped beating. I think they call it true love. Dad just says 'cool!'
