Mummy Laid an Egg

Author(s): Babette Cole

Picture Books

Mum and Dad decide it's time to tell their children the facts of life. But is it? Do they really dare? Or worst of all do they even know them? All sorts of hilarious possibilities are discussed: babies come from seeds. You can find them under stones. You grow them in flower pots. You can squeeze them from tubes like toothpaste. That is until the children decide it's time to put the record straight and that's where the real fun begins.
