Hollywood Hot Moms are going to LOVE this new book from New York Times bestselling author, Doreen Cronin:
From basic guidance and troubleshooting to historical overview and important safeguards, this is THE guide to the care and maintenance of mothers, who are, according to the book, “the most advanced human models on the planet.” (If you own a mother, you’ll have to agree, see page 3 in book.) Based on “years of research, observation, and time-outs” children (and dads) armed with this book can look forward to years of optimal performance from their mothers, if they follow the instructions carefully. With big safety alert symbols scattered throughout, readers who use the tips provided will have a far better chance of avoiding the most precarious mother-related situations, and will learn such imperatives as: how she should be fed (and how often), why she needs more than one inch of space on a bed (hey, you, you have your own bed, get back in it!), and what to do if her mad face ranks a 10 on the Mad Face Scale. Wickedly funny, acutely perceptive, this is a book that, pretty much, no one on this PLANET should be without. Moms are going to be handing this out left and right, gleefully. Don’t forget to read the fine print! Doreen Cronin is the author of the bestsellers DUCK FOR PRESIDENT, GIGGLE GIGGLE QUACK, DIARY OF A WORM, DIARY OF A SPIDER, DIARY OF A FLY, DOOBY, DOOBY MOO, THUMP QUACK MOO, WIGGLE, CLICK CLACK QUACKITY-QUACK. BOUNCE and CLICK CLACK SPLISH SPLASH. Her first book, CLICK, CLACK, MOO: COWS THAT TYPE, was named a Caldecott Honor Book. She lives in Brooklyn, New York with her husband and daughters. Laura Cornell is the illustrator of several #1 New York Times bestsellers by Jamie Lee Curtis, including BIG WORDS FOR LITTLE PEOPLE, TODAY I FEEL SILLY & OTHER MOODS THAT MAKE MY DAY and IS THERE REALLY A HUMAN RACE? Laura left stunning and sunny southern California to reside in soaring and spectacular New York City. She is oh so lucky to be mom to serene and wise Lilly. They have two semi-vicious cats, Indie and Brownie.
