Review quote

"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
