A modern picture-book classic – there’s never a dull moment with the Large family!
One morning Mrs Large, needing some peace and quiet away from her boisterous children, decides to take refuge in the bathroom. She fills herself a foamy bubble-bath and takes in a tray of her favourite breakfast … but finds her peace is to be very short-lived!

Comments about Five Minutes' Peace:
Fun read aloud for families that another Mum recommended to me. All Mums who have ever felt the need for some peace will enjoy this one. It might even encourage the kids that their Mum is not the only weird one who sometimes wants to be alone! The endings are always funny and encourage me to enjoy the quirks of real life with small children. We have a set of the Large Family books and audio CD and a DVD. The books and audio CD are my favourites. And these books, read on the couch with a cute small friend in fluffy PJs, are just perfect.
