A Celebration of Motherhood
The perfect gift for the mum in your life - a hugely enjoyable collection of new fiction, memoir and anecdote, illustrated with pictures and cartoons
From inspirational mums who are not afraid of anything – except spiders – to magical mums, reluctant mums and mums behaving badly, this is a wonderful collection of fiction and memoir from some of Britain’s best-loved writers.
With touching and amusing anecdotes from celebrity mums such as Nigella Lawson and Arabella Weir, as well as original illustrations from the likes of Shirley Hughes and Quentin Blake, this rich treasure trove with proceeds going to children’s charity PiggyBankKids reflects many voices from across the generations and is a glorious celebration of motherhood.
“Fans of the [short story] genre will love this collection ... telling tales of great mothers, reluctant mothers and eccentric mothers that will have you laughing one minute and wiping away a rogue tear the next. Dip into it or read it from cover to cover as I did, I promise you won't be disappointed”
“A delightful ... touching, and often hilarious, compilation”
“A charming anthology”
