‘A Monster Ate My Mum’
by Jen Faulkner
Illustrated by Helen Braid
We were sent this very special story book for review by the lovely Jen Faulkner, a sufferer of Post-Natal Depression, who wrote the book for her children after finding it difficult to explain the illness to them in a way that they would understand and now hopes that the book will also help other families affected by PND.
Aimed at children from 2-12 years, this rhyming and beautifully illustrated story is written from a child’s perspective, a little boy goes on a hunt to find the parts of his mum that he misses;
‘her smile, her laugh, her spark’
