My Mum's Growing Down Synopsis

She says 'I've worked so hard for years and I deserve a rest!' As she scribbles with crayons and pours custard down her dress, She's dangling from the banister with her head upside-down! Does your Mum do this? Help! My Mum's growing Down!

Mum is a gamer, a party animal and a free spirit making life hard work for her nine year old son.

Mum is a gamer, a party animal and a free spirit making life hard work for her nine year old son. These poems are a glimpse into their parent child relationship; their antics and adventures. From the hilarious ‘My Mum is a Gamer’ to the painfully proud celebration of single mothers in ‘My Mum is my Dad’ this is a hilarious, joy-filled exploration of the maternal bond (however embarrassing it might be).

The poems are bold, brave, funny and in some cases very moving. This collection shows just how funny, rude and naughty mums can be! It’s Dahl meets Dr Seuss, with a sprinkling of Absolutely Fabulous.
