  • From inspirational mums who are not afraid of anything - except spiders - to magical mums, reluctant mums and mums behaving badly, this is a wonderful collection of fiction and memoir from some of Britain's best-loved writers.

    With touching and amusing anecdotes from celebrity mums such as Nigella Lawson and Arabella Weir, as well as original illustrations from the likes of Shirley Hughes and Quentin Blake, this rich treasure trove with proceeds going to children's charity PiggyBankKids reflects many voices from across the generations and is a glorious celebration of motherhood.

Sarah Brown, wife of Gordon Brown, is President of the charity PiggyBankKids, which she founded in 2002. PiggyBankKids has launched the Jennifer Brown Research Fund to seek solutions to pregnancy difficulties and help save newborn lives, and supports a wide range of charitable projects which create opportunities for children and young people. Sarah and Gordon live in Fife and London with their sons. Gil McNeil is Publishing Director for PiggyBankKids and has worked in advertising, the film business and publishing. She is the bestselling author of The Only Boy for Me, Stand by your Man, In the Wee Small Hours and Divas Don't Knit. She lives in Canterbury with her son. Hugo Tagholm is Programme Director for PiggyBankKids. Hugo has worked in public relations and events management with a wide range of organisations, including the National Gallery, the Art Fund and the BBC. He lives in Camden Town and spends most of his spare time wakeboarding or chasing waves along the north Devon coast.
