The Mr. Men have been tickling children for generations with their funny and charming antics. The Mr Men for Grown-Ups series now gives adults the chance to laugh along as the Mr Men and Little Miss try to cope with the very grown-up world around them. Featuring Roger Hargreaves classic artwork alongside hilariously funny new text.

Little Miss Busy hadn’t always been so busy. She used to enjoy lazy weekends and leisurely lie-ins. But then she had kids. Now her life is a constant juggle of demands and pressure to be the perfect mum. How does Little Miss Busy do it?

The perfect book for anyone who has ever faced the trials and tribulations of the wonderful and exasperating world of parenthood.

Review 2020 red

Little Miss Busy was stressed out. She saw all the other mums at school who would tell her about how they did Pilates before the school run, how their houses were so neat and tidy all the time and how their children ate their veg and fruit and nutritional food without any bother, whilst to keep her life on track she had to write list after list. Little Miss Sunshine’s twins were learning Chinese, whilst her children were fighting over a stick.

I think those of us who have done the school run for primary school-aged children will have seen these mum’s who want to show the world that they are the best and that their lives run smoothly, while the rest of us have forgotten until the last minute about non-uniform day or world book day and you were supposed to make (or buy) a costume. How many of us have had to nip to the supermarket on the way to school to buy cakes for the cake fair that the children have only just reminded you about?

Little Miss Busy Surviving Motherhood is a book you can laugh along with and nod in agreement, we’ve all been there with the big ideas and then had to change the plans at the last minute because everything wasn’t working out.

It is a fun take on the Mr Men and Little Miss books and the artwork is the same as the original books. There are more in the series and I can’t wait to review them I just hope they are all as good as this book.
