The Magic of Mums by Justin Coe (Otter-Barry)
We all know that mums come in all shapes and sizes – well there’s a poem for every one of them here. Mums who work hard, mums who are famous, mums who are gentle, mums who come in pairs and, sadly, mums who are no longer at home or those Windrush mums who are not wanted now by the Mother Country. Interesting and moving, this book is a companion to Coe’s earlier Dictionary of Dads. Succinct illustrations by Steve Wells.
