Book Description

"I love my mummy very much, She's great to cuddle, soft to touch" A wonderfully simple and life-affirming text from the brilliant and award-winning Giles Andreae. Beautifully illustrated by Emma Dodd - children will love her accessible, bold and bright pictures. This is a book to be read and shared time and time again.

About the Author

Giles Andreae is the author of many top-selling, award-winning picture books. These include Rumble in the Jungle, Commotion in the Ocean and I Love My Mummy. However, it is for the international bestseller Giraffes Can't Dance that he is best known. Giles is also the creator of Purple Ronnie, Britain's favourite stickman, and of the artist/philosopher, Edward Monkton. These two ranges of greetings cards, books and merchandise have made Giles the country's top-selling living poet. Giles lives with his wife, Victoria, a children's clothes designer, and their four children by the river in Oxfordshire.

Emma was brought up in Guildford, Surrey, in a family of artists. As a child she loved the work of Peter Firmin, John Burningham and Gerald Rose, and from as far back as she can remember she wanted to be an illustrator. Emma studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Central Saint Martin's School of Art and has worked in advertising, editorial and book illustration. The I Love You range has sold over 750,000 copies and I Love My Mummy won the Book Trust Early Years Award. Emma lives in Surrey with her husband and two children and their terrier cross, Buzz, who keeps her fit and provides inspiration. The family likes to spend any spare time in North Cornwall, surfing and walking in all weathers.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nowhere near as lovely as "I love my daddy"
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 October 2020
The illustrations are sweet but I was really disappointed with the actual text. I love my Daddy is fun - they go on the swings, cook together, sing and dance etc. In comparison most pages in this are not endearing -mummy wipes a grubby nose, helps them "do a wee" and tells the little kid to not "scream and shout" when they go out....not quite so nice to read together.
