Get ready for giggles and ghouls in this celebration of hard-working mommies who also happen to be mummies. Here you'll find a doctor mum curing raspy spooks with coffin syrup and a fang-filling dentist completely wrapped up in her dangerous work. You'll also meet a librarian mummy who has her hands full with book worms, a writer mum conjuring spells for readers, and many others. With visual and verbal puns galore, this scream of a book helps illuminate the mysterious world where so many mommies disappear every day—and may also explain why some of them come home slightly unravelled.
