The Mum Hunt

Written by Gwyneth Rees

The Mum Hunt Synopsis

How hard can it be to find the perfect partner for your dad? Esmie misses her mum, even though she was only a tiny baby when she died. She has a photo by her bed, and sometimes - when she needs advice or just fancies a chat - she asks her mum for help. Sometimes she even hears her reply. But Esmie thinks her dad is lonely. And her big brother Matthew would definitely benefit from a female influence. So Esmie decides to take action: she's going to find her dad a girlfriend. Beautiful, clever, charming, kind to children and animals ... How hard can it be to find the perfect partner for your dad? In the book which won her the Red House Children's Book Award, Gwyneth Rees tells a story of healing and love with characteristic charm and humour. The Mum Hunt comes to Bloomsbury for a refreshed cover look and renewed marketing and publicity to bring new readers to this quirky, lovely modern classic.
