Waterstones Says

Revelling in the mess, chaos and frustration (and also profound love) of being a new parent, Kirby’s hugely popular Hurrah for Gin highlights the realities of parenthood through hilarious cartoons and observations. 

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.

MEDIA 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 *
My new favourite book. * Katie Piper *
Enjoying the illustrations and frankness of Katie Kirby * Alex Jones *
Mother's brilliant cartoons show the reality of raising children that ALL parents will relate to... [Katie Kirby's] hilarious cartoons depicting the reality of parenting have turned her into something of a hero for frazzled parents. * Daily Mail *
Beguiling enough for The New Yorker * Lionel Shriver *
Hilarious stick figure cartoons perfectly sum up the reality of motherhood... an amusingly frank account of life with young kids. What sets her apart is her wonderfully simple stick figure drawings which perfectly encapsulate the daily struggles of motherhood - with a large dollop of tongue-in-cheek humour. * The Sun *
Wickedly funny... sharply observed. * Mail on Sunday *

“Realistic and funny”

Wonderfully funny book about the reality of parenting - really down to earth and relatable. Only gripe is there are quite a few sketches which pad the book out. Brilliant if you like the Unmumsy Mum series.
