Review: Don't Let the Aliens Get My Marvellous Mum!

"If my mum were abducted by aliens, there would be no one to..."

This little girl is keen to hide how marvellous her mum is - lest the aliens notice how great life would be with her close, and take her.

Because if the aliens took her away, who would tuck her in bed at night? Who would remind her to take everything she needs? Who would wave goodbye?

This is a gorgeous story for babies and toddlers, about just some of the things there are to love about mums.

Coupled with the funny, bright and vibrant illustrations of aliens trying to do all the jobs a mum does... well, this is a winner.

A great story to read with your little one this Mother's Day.
