When Owen's Mom Breathed Fire
by Pija Lindenbaum
Age Range: Under_5
One morning when Owen wakes up, he discovers that his mum has turned into a dragon and even worse she has forgotten how a mum should behave. Hilarious sequences arise as Owen tries to deal with the situation. His dragon mum is doing all sorts of strange things from licking the dishes instead of washing them, stamping on her mobile phone, breathing fire at everyone in the park, eating bugs and thumping her tail angrily on the floor in the doctor’s surgery.
Another unusual witty picture book from Swedish author and illustrator Pia Lindenbaum with delightful comic illustrations.
