Summary

‘A beautiful gift of a book . . . had me howling and tearing up!’ GIOVANNA FLETCHER

‘Brilliant . . . Made me feel less alone.’ JOSIE LONG
‘A really special book.’ EVIE WYLD

Fantastically funny, wise and charming motherhood sketches from award-winning illustrator Polly Dunbar.

‘Go away, I’m busy writing about the beauty of motherhood.’

Polly Dunbar is an award-winning illustrator who usually draws for children rather than adults, but when she had her own sons, she started recording the beautiful and maddening moments of parenthood with a doodle.

Hello, Mum is her visual diary of the magical highs and absurd lows that many parents will recognise – from the shock and awe of the baby days to the delight (and terror) of the toddler years and the mayhem of sibling rivalry. Dunbar’s fantastically funny, wise and enchanting drawings capture this precious and fleeting time with heart-touching perfection.

Polly’s sketches capture beautifully those moments with your very young children. They are a memory-book of feelings. Tender, funny, sometimes heartbreaking snapshots of motherhood. As my six-year-old daughter says, these pictures are ‘kind and lovely’.
