My Mum Is Magnificent is a lovely new board book for children to celebrate mothers in a funny way like only Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake can do. It’s aimed at 3+ year old kids who are learning how to read their first books. It’s colourful, quirky and wonderful.
Roald Dahl was a spy, ace fighter pilot, chocolate historian and medical inventor.
The author of Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG and many more brilliant stories, he remains THE WORLD’S NUMBER ONE STORYTELLER.
Quentin Blake has illustrated more than three hundred books and was Roald Dahl’s favourite illustrator. In 1980 he won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal. In 1999 he became the first ever Children’s Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted for services to illustration. I had the honour of interviewing him in 2014. You can read our chat here.
My Mum Is Magnificent could be a great gift for mums and their toddlers to share a bonding moment over a good classic read.
