Didn't think mums could have so much fun? Think again. Mothers' Wit is full of classic one-liners from a rich variety of red-hot mammas such as Victoria Wood, Joan Rivers, Roseanne and Marge Simpson.
Covering all the joys of motherhood, these celebrated matriarchs deliver belly laughs and offer pearls of maternal wisdom on such topics as morning sickness and stretch marks, playground politics and raising hormonal teenagers, frenzied mealtimes and dreary household chores. Complemented with sharp insights from family members, Mothers' Wit will give every mother the one thing she really needs and usually deserved: a good laugh.
