This book is not a how-to-guide. It won't tell you how to get your baby to sleep, how to deal with toddler tantrums, how to be a good parent, a cool parent or even a renegade parent. It is a book about parenting that contains absolutely no useful advice whatsoever.

Instead it shares beautifully honest anecdotes and illustrations from the parenting frontline that demonstrate it is perfectly possible to love your children with the whole of your heart whilst finding them incredibly irritating at the same time.

From pregnancy to starting school, Hurrah for Gin takes you through the exciting, frustrating, infuriating and wonderful whirlwind of parenthood, offering solidarity and a friendly hug after a tough day.

Best served with gin.

About the Author

Katie blogs over at Hurrah For Gin, a very real account of parenting sans the sugar coating. She lives in Brighton in the UK with her husband and two young boys and is an avid lover of rabbits, cheese and brushing her teeth... Oh and Gin!

Industry Reviews

Her account of parenting is as wickedly funny as it is honest and brave, and the amazing stick figure illustrations some how say it all. Motherland

By far the best parenting book I've ever read! All the LOLZ.


Makes the everyday madness of raising kids somehow seem ok. Loved it.

Central Coast




I loved this irreverent book. It is hilarious but also quite comforting as it characterises what many parents feel when parenting small children.



Totes hilarious- hang on Sammy don't eat the cat!


Gave to sis, read it first!!
