Where to buy it


Finally — a picture book for the Starbucks-armed, BlackBerry-checking, gym-going working mother. The high-octane duo of Rebecca Eckler and Erica Ehm have cooked up The Mischievous Mom at the Art Gallery, featuring a thoroughly modern mother who makes a point of including her two children in her always hectic life. At five o’clock, when Mom gets home, everything changes for Jessie and Josh. Their mother is mischievous, curious, adventurous, and free-spirited. In The Mischievous Mom at the Art Gallery, Mom takes her children to a swanky art gallery party. Although Jessie and Josh think standing around looking at art on a wall is B-O-R-I-N-G, they quickly learn otherwise. Nothing is ever really boring when Mom is around — especially when a “Do Not Enter — VIPs only!” sign beckons. Behind that door is a world of adventure just waiting to be discovered. Featuring the bright and energetic artwork of Carrie Hartman, The Mischievous Mom is for modern moms and their children — and for anyone who knows that not being afraid to think outside of the box can lead to the most memorable experiences of all.
