Her account of parenting is as wickedly funny as it is honest and brave, and the amazing stick figure illustrations some how say it all.
Wickedly funny... sharply observed.
My new favourite book.
Mother's brilliant cartoons show the reality of raising children that ALL parents will relate to... [Katie Kirby's] hilarious cartoons depicting the reality of parenting have turned her into something of a hero for frazzled parents.
Hilarious stick figure cartoons perfectly sum up the reality of motherhood... an amusingly frank account of life with young kids. What sets her apart is her wonderfully simple stick figure drawings which perfectly encapsulate the daily struggles of motherhood - with a large dollop of tongue-in-cheek humour.
Beguiling enough for The New Yorker
Enjoying the illustrations and frankness of Katie Kirby
