About the Book

SHORTLISTED for the Scholastic Lollies Awards – My Mum Is A Grown Down is a larger than life collection of poems for a middle grade audience about one wild, hysterical and hilarious Mum.

She says ‘I’ve worked so hard for years and I deserve a rest!’
As she scribbles with crayons and pours custard down her dress,
She’s dangling from the banister with her head upside-down!
Does your Mum do this?
Help! My Mum’s growing DOWN!

Mum is a gamer, a party animal and a free spirit making life hard work for her nine year old son. These poems are a glimpse into their parent child relationship; their antics and adventures. The poems are bold, brave, funny and some - very moving. This collection shows just how funny, rude and naughty mums can be! It’s Dahl meets Dr Seuss meets Colin McNaughton with a sprinkling of Absolutely Fabulous.

‘The most entertaining poetry collection since Spike Milligan’s Silly Verse for Kids.’ The i

‘A rollicking, rib tickling collection of poems.’ Carousel

‘A joyous book.’ WRD

‘Vibrant, hilarious and touching book of well-crafted and original poems. A truly lovely book.’ BookTrust

‘Individuality and eccentricity is expressed through engaging verse.’ The School Librarian
