The night before Charlie was born I had this dream. I dreamt that I was a soldier, riding into battle ... completely naked, and on the back of a large, inflatable duck.

Matt Coyne has become a hero for thousands of parents everywhere who are devoted followers of his popular blog, Man vs Baby.

This is his book, and it is not your average parenting tome. It's packed with completely impractical advice for the bewildered new mum or dad - stuff you won't find anywhere else: from 'Profanity Bingo' for labour to a categorisation of various nappy disasters. But, more than that, it is the story of how becoming a parent is a kind of beautiful insanity - a thing that changes you.

Above all, Dummy will keep you laughing through the exhaustion, the mystery and the madness of bringing up your own children.

This is the parenting book for real people.

“Hilarious introduction to parenting”

I bought this book for my husband in preparation for our first child being born. It was a huge success - he is now terrified out of his wits, but the book had both of us crying with laughter during the reading, and at... More

“Funny and painfully accurate ”

When I received a review copy of this, I first gave it to my husband to read and watched him chuckle away. It is a great book for fathers, soon to be fathers and people considering being fathers, because it is a... More
