Author(s): Babette Cole
The new book in Babette Cole's bestselling series of "family dilemmas that began with "Mummy Laid an Egg.""
Puberty. Who else but Babette Cole would have the temerity to tackle this subject in a picture book, and the genius to carry it off. The text, which takes the form of a conversation between a small girl and her teddy bear, is ingenious and funny.
As it turns out, it is the behaviour of the wonderfully depicted Mr. and Mrs. Hormone that plays havoc with the physical and emotional states of girls and boys between, roughly, eight to eighteen years. The book is bound to be controversial but Babette Cole has never taken the conventional path and her readers love her for her outrageous approach to little-mentioned topics.
The fifth title in Babette Cole's bestselling series of 'family dilemmas'
"Babette Cole is as batty, rebellious and strange as her creations... funny, unrestrained and totally unforgettable." - "Independent on Sunday"
Babette Cole is filled with zest for life: she lives in Dorset but travels extensively, to exotic parts of the world but also around Great Britain, visiting schools and meeting children. She is a great animal lover and keeps chickens, sheep, horses, dogs and cats which all find their way into her books.
