A book of illustrations with universal appeal about the love between a kid and their mother – funny, touching, celebratory.

Why I Love My Mum celebrates the ageless, timeless bond between a child and their mother, in a neatly sized illustrated hardback that makes the perfect gift. Through all kinds of familiar scenarios, illustrator Rob Stears brings his unique style to bear on the subject – wickedly funny yet always tender – as he takes us through the child/mother relationship, via the generations. From first teeth to scaring away the bogeyman, through coming-of-age moments in life and on to the new appreciation parenthood brings for our own mothers, this is a book that is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face, making even the most challenging moments of parenthood feel just a little bit less daunting – and a lot funnier.


A hilarious look at the evolution of a nation, from the bestselling author of Why I Love My Mum

Popular illustrator Rob Stears looks at the habits of the Irish culture, and portrays the ways we’ve changed since the ‘old days’ – when coffee drinking was a spoon of instant, directions were a magical mystery tour, and age 18 was a reasonable time to move out of the family home. From politics to entertainment, from food and drink to trends and hobbies, In My Day also celebrates those things that remain the same through time – such as our steadfast belief in the magical healing qualities of 7Up!
