Written in English

A child describes the many wonderful things about "my mom," who can make anything grow, roar like a lion, and be as comfy as an armchair. The perfect gift for Mother's Day Following up on his bestseller My Dad, the inimitable Anthony Browne returns to celebrate the every-mom. In this paean to motherhood, we first meet Mom over a cup of coffee, clad in a floral robe. The robe is ever present as her child describes her wondrous abilities and traits: from fantastic cook to brilliant juggler to great painter and from being as beautiful as a butterfly to being as comfy as an armchair - this mother will be recognizable to one and all. Through all the charming characteristics detailed, Browne brilliantly paints his heroine with humor and affection. The ultimate message that shines forth is: "I love my mom. And you know what? SHE LOVES ME! (And she always will.)"
