Product Description

Review

"Each spread is a perfectly conceived whole, each picture demanding endless scrutiny . . . Original, unexpected, funny and typically Browne" (Julia Eccleshare Guardian)

"The pictures are a delight, an easy fusion of the ordinary with the surreal, painted with clear-eyed detail. Very witty, very true. Small children will love Mum, and so will parents" (Sally Williams Independent)

"It is full of caprice and oddity and wit" (Kate Kellaway Observer)

"A minimal text and simple, bold, and colourful pictures puts mothers all over the world on the pedestal that they surely deserve to be on" (Through the Looking Glass)

"A joy of a book, a celebration of mums everywhere" (Carousel)

Book Description

The perfect book for all mums! A brilliant follow-up to the bestselling My Dad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Nice 1 April 2005
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful book that is destined to become a classic. It made my wife cry when given as Mother's day present by our baby daughter. It sums up everything a mother means to a child and is illustrated in a timeless way. If you really, really love your mum then show her this wonderful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A celebration of Mummys everywhere. 16 Aug 2007
By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My son absolutely loves this book. Beautiful illustrations celebrating all the things Mum is good at as seen through the eyes of a small child. Like the "My Dad" book the ending shows Mum and child sharing a cuddle and acknowledging how much they love one another. My son always says "That's you Mummy and you are giving me a cuddle" before throwing himself into my arms for a real one. Beautiful - we love it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sweet book but unsure of message for young girls 22 Oct 2012
By SB
Format:Board book
"My mum COULD be a dancer, or an astronaut, or a movie star, or the Big Boss.... BUT she's not. She's my mum."

I do like this book but always get a little miffed with this line.

Actually, I am the Big Boss, and I COULD be a dancer, or a movie star, or an astronaut and still be a great mum.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my son's bedtime favorites! 9 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful book, my son and I absolutely love it and must have read it together hundred of times as it is a bedtime favorite. I have also given it as a gift for friends at babyshowers as I think it makes a lovely addition to a child's library. 'My Dad' (by the same author) is also a must have as it stops Daddy feeling too left out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightful book for young children 8 Jan 2010
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as I already had Anthony Browne's 'My Dad' book which has become a firm favourite of my 16 month old son who will repeatedly pick it out for reading again and again. This book is very much in the same vein, being both warm and touching. The prose is amusing and easily memorable (useful if having to read upside down) and the illustrations are beautiful.
