EDGE: How to Handle Your Mum
By Roy Apps
Illustrated by Nick Sharratt
All the answers to your troublesome family and adult-handling questions!
This super silly book is here to 'help' children with all mum-related problems (so add it to the basket quick, before your mum spots it in her order, erhem!)
Inside you'll find highly expert* advice, from identifying mum 'types' to solving mum problems, how to identify super-mum powers and, of course, how to defend yourself against them.
This hilarious handbook helps you to train your mum - frankly, before it's too late - and has some cool quizzes to test your mum-handling skills.
WARNING: contains daft material that kids might actually enjoy reading. Perfect for readers aged 7+.
