She's nice, my mum ...My mum's a fantastic cook, and a brilliant juggler. She's a great painter, and the strongest woman in the world! She's really nice, my mum. A warm, funny tribute to Mum (and to mums everywhere) by the brilliant author/illustrator Anthony Browne.
The perfect book for all mums! A brilliant follow-up to the bestselling My Dad.
"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 function 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 "This book will find ready readers in Browne's many fans who will enjoy inter-textual fun in recognition of his trademark images" Inis "A joy of a book, a celebration of mum's everywhere" Carousel
