‘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.
A beautiful gift of a book . . . [Hello, Mum] had me howling and tearing up!
I loved how it quietly captures all the anxiety, beauty and hilarity . . . A really special book.
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’.
Brilliant . . . tender, relatable, raw, and made me feel less alone.
Dunbar perfectly captures both the blissful, simple joy and the earth-shattering frustration that is the parenting pendulum. Gorgeous.
This thing of beauty by Polly Dunbar has been keeping me sane.
