A charming and very funny tribute to the children's classic, to appeal to mums everywhere.

The day Mum didn't get dressed and went on strike, Dad called her 'a Wild Thing' and Mum said 'Cook your own dinner' and stomped off upstairs to have a bath . . .

In this hilarious, touching homage to Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are, a worn-out mum finds herself floating across time and space to the place where the Wild Mums are. Dazzled by her party tricks, they crown her Queen of the Wild Mums and try to entice her to join their conga . . . But Mum has just remembered who she loves best of all . . .

Lovingly illustrated by the award-winning Sholto Walker, this little book is the perfect gift for baby showers, new mums - or any mum who's ever wanted to go on strike.

Where the Wild Mums Are


I showed Wild Mums to my son and he immediately commandeered it for his kids. I'll buy another one.



Aptly titled


Very good service and a lovely book. I purchased it as a gift, but, I don't think I can part with it. Come and read at Nanas'.
