"There are three things that Children will happily share . . . .
Nasal mucus secretions. Animal poo deposits on their shoes. The precise age of their parents."
Mummy Says...Daddy Says introduces the reader to the surreal world of Jules Ede, an author fortunate enough to have resided on the affluent border of South West London and Surrey for the past fourteen years. Having had the opportunity to observe and analyse family life of its more comfortable residents and their privileged offspring from several different aspects, he attempts to sketch an authentic but affectionate caricature of some of these parents and their children by using a canvas of some scenarios that they might well be experiencing in their everyday lives.
Stencilled sparingly between some of these portraits are a few choice quotations from children about their nurturers, and alternatively from parents about their beloved offspring that prove to be entertaining and a glimpse through the window of society's anomalies.
The illustrations contained within the pages are completely original and echo those that might appear in Ladybird Adult Humour books. Existing parents will appreciate the humour and entirely accurate portraits depicting the beautiful and often embarrassing things our children say.
