My Silly Mum by Monique Mulligan

Veronica Rooke illustrator picture book serenity press
Dancing with the vacuum cleaner … making my dinner into funny faces. My mum is so silly she drives me nuts! Sometimes I wish my mum wasn’t so silly … or do I?

With delightful illustrations and a hearty sprinkling of humour, My Silly Mum captures the eye-rolling, face-palming moments of growing up with a mother who still remembers what it’s like to be a child.

Illustrations: Veronica Rooke

Hey! Here's my review.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this picture book to my kids. The quality of print and binding is high and the illustrations beautiful and engaging. There were many parts of the book I related too, being a silly mum myself, and I had a giggle as I read. 

**Interview with my 5 & 7 year olds**

Me: What did you think of this book?
7: It's very silly.
5: Awesome.

Me: What was your favourite bit?
7: When she sung weird songs in the car.
5:The funny faces and the clothes inside out 
Me:Why did you like that bit?
5: 'Cause you put my clothes on inside out sometimes.
Can you read it again? 

I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
