Description

A hilarious look at a child's view of a mother's bad day.   Originally published in 1989 by Ragweed Press, this book is considered to be a P.E.I. classic. This unique view of mother's "bad day" through the observant eyes of a child is a weird and wonderful story for parents and children.   My mother is so weird. Some mornings, when she wakes up, she has horns on her head and long pointy teeth and claws. She speaks in a voice like a jackhammer. But after her morning coffee, Mom's horns disappear, and her teeth and claws shrink back to normal. She speaks in a soft, smooth voice.   But, one morning...we ran out of coffee...
