Product description

Proof that you can make a blub-a-bucket tragic story very funny. Snort loudly through your tears. George and Theo’s mum is brilliant. She tells great stories and can wave the fastest of anyone on the planet. Most importantly, she was the one who suggested they adopt a scruffy dog called Goffo. The boys think she’s invincible. But they’re wrong. Because Mum is ill. Really ill. They know she’s probably dying – but can they keep her smiling? Which will almost certainly involve wellies, shepherd’s pie and dog tricks. (Plus a few fart jokes.) Loss and laughter: this heart-tugging book is the most funny/sad thing since Morris Gleitzman’s Once.

Nominated for the Carnegie Medal 2015.
