These two books are a fun gift for a new parent! Each book plays a hilarious homage to Maurice Sendak's popular children's classic 'Where The Wild Things Are'.
You have a choice of either a mum or dad version.
A tired mum nods off in the bath and finds herself floating across time and space to the island where the Wild Mums live. Dazzled by her party tricks, they crown her Queen of the Wild Mums and try to entice her to join their conga..... But in all the excitement, has Mum forgotten who she loves best of all?
The night Dad had a few cheeky ones after work, forgot the milk and tripped over the rubbish, Mum called him a Wild Thing..... and a tired dad finds himself drifting off to the place where the Wild Dads went.
These books are for any parent who occasionally dreams of escaping the humdrum life and running away from it all!
Written by Katie Blackburn and beautifully illustrated by Sholto Walker.
