4. Go The F*$K To Sleep

Hilarious! Don’t let the beautiful illustrations fool you- one line reads: “The eagles who soar through the sky are at rest and the creatures who crawl, run and creep. I know you’re not thirsty. That’s bulls**t. Stop lying. Lie the f**k down, my darling, and sleep.”

6. Where The Wild Mums Are

“But Mum just laughed, and danced as though there were no end to her wildness and magnificence, all the while balancing a drink on her head and not spilling it and they were dazzled and said she should be Queen of the Wild Mums.” Nights out are a rarity in motherhood, and so when it happens, they really do go wild.
