About the Story

When Mum's busy she says she's run off her feet.  When I dawdle, Mum tells me to shake a leg.  When I say, "I'm coming," Mum says, "So is Christmas."  My mum says the STRANGEST things.

Join our gorgeous mum, Fiona Harris (and Sandy the cat!) as she shares with you a story which explores the crazy things that mothers say - I bet your mum is just as guilty.  Tom Jellet's cheeky illustrations perfectly complement Katrina Germein's ode to mothers everywhere!
