Review Text

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

Review quote

A joy of a book, a celebration of mums everywhere * Carousel * 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 * It is full of caprice and oddity and wit -- Kate Kellaway * Observer * 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 * Each spread is a perfectly conceived whole, each picture demanding endless scrutiny . . . Original, unexpected, funny and typically Browne -- Julia Eccleshare * Guardian *
