Mums! If you're hoping that it will get easier once the baby learns to walk and talk, you are so very wrong. In Dog Poo on the Trike Wheels Penny Attiwill and Sean Roche take a gleeful swipe at the toddler years, showing once again that the kids are in total control of your life. From vomit bugs and competitive "yummy mummies" to the appalling bribes and threats you use to cajole your tiny dictators through their day, it's all here and more. With pithy text and charming 1950s-style illustrations, Dog Poo on the Trike Wheels takes a wry look at those days in a young mum's life when, with an infant attached to one boob and your toddler ruthlessly thumping the other to get your attention again, you long to be anywhere but here. Dog Poo on the Trike Wheels is the second in a series of titles that have been bestsellers in Australia. Other titles include Dog Poo on the Pram Wheels, Mummy Doesn't Do It like That and Grandpa Gave Us Chocolate at Bedtime.
Penny Attiwill lives in Melbourne with her two young daughters, Matilda and Grace, who are the inspiration for these books. Penny is also the founder of The Nappy Bag Book, a national resource guide for Australian parents.
