The Fish Finger Years Summary

The Fish Finger Years by Fiona Gibson

If you have an embarrassing child who bursts into friends' houses announcing 'It stinks in here' or shouts 'why is that man so fat?' on the bus (and not a spooky child who replaces felt-tip lids and enjoys dusting) then this book is for you. Self-confessed imperfect mum, Fiona Gibson blends her own hilarious tales of raising three children with anecdotes and nuggets of advice from 300 fellow parents who admit they too get things wrong occasionally. Stories and tips cover a huge range of parenting dilemmas, from 'what to do if your child has a screaming, plank-rigid wobbler in M&S, and everyone's giving you Bad Parent looks' and 'how to handle a foul-mouthed monster obsessed with the toilet parts of horses' to 'sex: should you make the effort or just not bother?'. Above all, this funny, refreshingly honest look at being a real-life mum will come as a welcome reminder that yours is not the only family who can't go to Ikea without tears, tantrums and the threat of divorce!

Gibson's original voice is at once comic and accurate' Adele Parks 20050304 'A funny and compelling novel that will appeal to new mums' Pregnancy on BABYFACE 20050304 'A fantastic debut. More than funny, it's true' Louise Bagshawe on BABYFACE 20050304 'A funny, warm, compelling and wonderfully observed novel, hilarious to singletons and mothers alike' Marie Claire on BABYFACE 20050304
