The perfect gift for new parents, H is for Hummus is a wittily observed ABC which highlights the realities of middle class parenting - B is for Babyccino, C is for Catchment, R is for Reward Chart, W is for Wheat Intolerant... Spot on and very funny (Mumsnet)
A jokey alphabet book that adults find funny, too. F is for Farrow and Ball, for example! (Jennifer Saunders)
Brings the vocabulary of modern parenting right up to date, and makes gentle fun of unwritten middle-class rules, as well as the essential products and customs that parents subscribe to: dough balls at Pizza Express, Trunkis and Micro Scooters (the only brand to be seen with)... (Sunday Telegraph)
Fabulous - brilliantly reflects the busy lives of the modern-day toddler. The perfect antidote to the traditional ABC book, and the perfect gift for parents, new, old, and soon to be (The Adventures of Sonny & Luca)

He has been working to commission since 1998 in a world of coffee cups and ordered chaos; his work follows this theme with the creation of sketchy ideas and twisted thoughts.

It's a great idea I think, and parents who are fed up of the same old ABC books may also find it amusing. Definitely more for the parents than the child ;-)
Very modern and very apt, especially if you're from the west end (of Glasgow, that is).
Nice illustrations and nicely printed/bound.
Even my child-less friends enjoyed reading it!
