Overview

Motherhood is the world's most demanding—and rewarding—job. It's a calling that comes with incredible highs and gut-wrenching lows. How to express both the joys and challenges inherent in parenting the next generation in a way that is guaranteed to leave your audience smiling with tears in their eyes? Leave it to the one and only, Bradley Trevor Greive.

In this moving and yet often side splittingly funny homage to mothers everywhere, the best-selling author has masterfully paired his insightful prose with humorous animal photography that quickly and succinctly sums up his narrative's loving nuances. A mother tiger nuzzling her cub. A basset hound with an ice bag on her head. All are fodder and focus for BTG's unique wit and wisdom.

From birth to toddlers to teenagers, The Incredible Truth About Mothers covers the many stops and starts children make on their journey to adulthood and describes how devoted mothers are both teacher and student. Of course, the book ends with a heartfelt "I love you, Mom!" on behalf of the hundreds of thousands of readers who will buy it as a Mother's Day present.

Meet the Author

Since the debut of his international bestseller The Blue Day Book, Bradley Trevor Greive has become a household name in more than 115 countries. A former Australian paratrooper, BTG left the army to pursue more creative misadventures. He has been bitten by wild monkeys and rabid bats and was accepted into Russia’s cosmonaut training program–though those incidents were, by and large, unrelated. BTG spends most of his time in a tiny Tasmanian hamlet.

    Made my Mother's Day

    I bought this book for my Mother for her day. It was a big hit. I looked over several similar books but this one had the best photos and the nicest, most true "truths." This kind of book is a dime a dozen but this one is truly well done and doesn't rely on a just "too cute" style. My Mother has placed it on her coffee table and has been enjoying it for over a month. I recommend it as a great gift for your great Mom or a great Mom you know.
