This young narrator’s mum has a hard life! For a start she’s late picking him up from school, her car has broken down as well as her washing machine and the gas has run out for the cooker. Problems keep piling up and the poor mum gets more and more exhausted. To give her some peace and quiet to mark her students’ homework – the mum teaches Arabic – the father and the son try to stay quiet. But they keep hearing her cheering and groaning in her office because when mum is busy marking homework, her good mood comes back. That’s when the day gets better! The illustrations, using a range of visual forms, are full of jokey humour and delightful details.
