Mum is in a bad mood. She has too much housework to do. The little boy understands she is at the end of her tether and when he finds her with tears rolling down her cheeks he gives her a big kiss. The author also wrote "In the Night". Foreman illustrated "The Sand Horse" and "Cat and Canary".

From Kirkus Reviews:

A wide-eyed preschooler explains that Mom is in a bad mood; she has so much to do that she can't read with him, or play-- she's ``chained to the kitchen sink.'' Left on his own, the child decides to tidy up his own belongings, depicted in creative disarray in Foreman's colorful watercolors. Then, tiptoeing downstairs, he finds Mom weeping into the dishwater, wipes away her tears, and leads her out into the sunshine--''Just in time'' to share its beauty. Foreman's illustrations are more slapdash than usual for this fine artist but sympathetic. A touching vignette. (Picture book. 3-7) -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- A bit of bibliotherapy for parents. A mother is chained to the kitchen sink with so many chores that there's no time for cookies, or stories, or play. Her young son comes to her rescue giving her a kiss and pulling her into the yard just in time to see a flock of swans flying overhead. Foreman's pastel watercolors are as light and airy as this slight tale. Shipton reminds parents to take time out for their children, but Anthony Browne's Gorilla (Knopf, 1985) offers a much stronger story line and illustrations on the same theme. --Judith Gloyer, Milwaukee Public Library
