Where the Wild Mums Are
Wouldn't it be nice to run away, just for a little while?
By Katie Blackburn
A charming and very funny tribute to the children's classic, set to appeal to mums everywhere. 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.
