This is a mum.

A mum has two very important jobs to do. One is to look after her children.

The other is to do everything else as well.

Your mum is there for you through the nappy years, the incessant ‘But why?’ years, the years of after-school sports and sleep-overs; she is a chauffeur, a nurse, a seamstress, a sounding-board, a mediator and a shoulder to cry on.

There are many things she could have been, and other lives she could have had: “Gwen has a 2:1 in Ancient History. She always planned to write a series of novels on Boadicea. Gwen is covered in applesauce. She has spent the afternoon clapping.”

A mum is endlessly patient and is often to be seen with a glass of wine in her hand late at night.

This is an irreverent, hilarious look at what it means to be a mum, with illustrations from the original series of Ladybird Books for Children.
