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.
