"Light-Hearted Look at Mums Everywhere"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Delightful little story, beautifully illustrated throughout. A must-have for all those frazzled mums with little ones, who just never seem to be able to get that few minutes of time to themselves. Not for those who take themselves too seriously! As usual, Mighty Ape delivered so fast my parcel almost arrived before I'd finished the order. The book arrived in perfect condition, well protected in it's slick package. Thanks Might Ape!

"Great coffee table book."

Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is a great light hearted book. I found it a good pick me up and gave me a laugh.


The day Mum didn't get dressed and went on strike, Dad called her 'a Wild Thing' and Mum said 'Cook your own dinner' and stomped off upstairs to have a bath . . . In this hilarious, touching homage to Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are, a worn-out mum finds herself floating across time and space to the place where the Wild Mums are. Dazzled by her party tricks, they crown her Queen of the Wild Mums and try to entice her to join their conga . . . But Mum has just remembered who she loves best of all . . . Lovingly illustrated by the award-winning Sholto Walker, this little book is the perfect gift for baby showers, new mums - or any mum who's ever wanted to go on strike.
