Book Description

28 Feb 2013

Most parents photograph their children growing up, but Doodlemum (Angie Stevens) posts a drawing of her children and their family life on her blog every night (after the kids have gone to sleep). She draws everything from holidays to pets, tantrums to camping. All captured in a few key strokes of the pen.

Angie Stevens's enthusiasm for drawing developed in childhood and she went on to study illustration at the Unviersity of Westminster. After shis, she says, came 'the tsunami of children and marriage' but her passion for drawing never left her. After the birth of her third child, 'a bit exhausted, sleep-deprived and probably suffering from a bit of post natal depression', her husband bought her a collection of Moleskine notebooks and suggested it might help to start drawing again. It did, and in 2010 the Doodlemum blog was born.

Over 1000 illustrations later, Doodlemum is established. This is the book her fans have been asking for - perfect for them and for those who will fall in love with this tender and funny picture of family life in all its messy glory.

5.0 out of 5 stars A funny and warm uplifting book 2 Mar 2013
Format:Hardcover
I have been an avid reader of Doodlemum's blog. However, her everyday life of family sketches are really brought to life in this illustrated book.

I have children myself so could relate to a lot of her drawings. You will find some make you laugh out loud in a coffee shop and shed a tear on the train. All in all a wonderful book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful book! 2 Mar 2013
By Pete H
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Sweet, charming and lovingly drawn, this collection of moments from a year in the life of Doodlemum made me smile a lot, sympathise often and even laugh out loud.
Wipe the kitchen window with your sleeve and peep inside to share in the joy, troubles, laughs and tears of a family growing together as parents, children and people (oh.. and animals!).
I read it from cover to cover as soon as it arrived. Wonderful!
