When I’m a Mummy Like You!



This is a picture book written by me and illustrated by Francesca Gambatesa.

Being a mummy must be so much fun… mustn’t it? Sweet and hilarious family fun from a fabulous author/illustrator pairing. It must be AMAZING to be a mummy! Every child wants to be just like their mummy and do all the exciting things that grown-ups do. But is being a mummy really that much fun? Or can being small be just as special? Maybe they can both be wonderful, if you do them together… A joyous and heart-warming story of family love and playing together, in this second title from a talented new author/illustrator pairing.

David writes beautifully simple rhyming couplets – leaving plenty of room to pause and appreciate all the love and warmth on the page. Francesca’s illustrations are gorgeously tender capturing the adoring looks between mum and daughter.
