9780064410335: My Working Mom

Everyone knows that it isn't always easy having a working mom, but this girl's mom has a job that keeps her whole family jumping!

After all, when your mom is always flying off to meetings or mixing strange potions in her laboratory, life can be both trying and exciting. And even through Mom throws birthday parties that are out of this world, there are still those bats and frogs who always follow her around.

Peter Glassman's enchanting story, brewed together with Tedd Arnold's bewitching pictures, is sure to cast its spell on young readers, whoever and whatever their mothers may be.

About the Author:

Peter Glassman is the owner of Books of Wonder, the New York City bookstore and publisher specializing in new and old imaginative books for children. He is also the editor of the Books of Wonder Classics, a series of deluxe facsimiles and newly illustrated editions of timeless tales. And he is the author of The Wizard Next Door, illustrated by Steven Kellogg. Mr. Glassman lives in New York City.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Mother as mad scientist, mother as witch--that's what the illustrations here are all about. The words are another thing altogether: a child's innocent account of what mother does--e.g., ``Mom says her meetings are boring, but I'll bet they're a blast!'' The overwhelming cartoon accompanying this matter-of- fact observation shows a delirious witches' coven. In the pictures, Mom creates monster frogs, gives children rides on her broom, and makes birthday cakes out of the moon, all to the beat of simple sentences. It's a deliciously sly example of picture book counterpoint: The author and illustrator's parallel themes combine to create an explosive third melody. Children may enjoy contrasting this with the subtler harmony of fantasy and reality in Rosenberg/Gammell's Monster Mama (1993). (Picture book. 3-7) -- Copyright ©1994, Kirkus Associates, LP.
