Bookmark of Spalding has chosen The Mum, from the Ladybirds for Grown Ups series, as it’s top read for this week.
From bestselling authors Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris comes this nugget of wisdom in the phenomenal Ladybirds for Grown Ups series.
The Mum is scarily accurate, hugely funny and guaranteed to make you laugh out loud more than once.
This book is the perfect blend of nostalgia, humour and modernity.
The re-purposing of familiar images (if like me you’re over 40 and learnt to read with Ladybird books) with amusing comments on the peculiar trials of being a Mum.
This is close to word-for-word some of the moans and concerns of me and other mothers I know.
The never getting to go to the loo alone is covered, as is never drinking a whole cup of tea and having the Octonauts theme tune going round in your head.
The book retails for £6.99 but there is a 20 per cent discount voucher in the Spalding Guardian of February 25.
