Let’s face it: motherhood, in all its glory, gives you so many reasons for bad moods. From stretch marks to all-consuming guilt, from toddler to tantrums to teenage sulks – sometimes you wish you could just put a break and put it all on the moon. This taboo-breaking adult activity book encourages all Mothers to vent safely.

Suitable for all Mothers, from those with screaming babies to those with intolerable grownup children!
