Shortlisted for Book of the Year, Speech Pathology Australia, 2019


Ninjas! Pirates! Superheroes! Beasts! What's next? MAGICIANS.

From the award-winning author/illustrator duo Damon Young and Peter Carnavas comes a spellbinding picture book celebrating mums everywhere.

Some mums gulp green tea,
with bitter barley blends.
But my mum is a magician ...
her cup of coffee never ends.

All mums are different. But what if your mum was really different? What if your mum was a magician?
