At last—the book that truly feels your pain...

Whether you’ve had a kid for decades or a few minutes, you know it can hurt— physically, emotionally, and, let’s just say it: like a motherf*&^%! In the vein of Go The F*ck To Sleep, this grown-up picture book parody of Edward Gorey’s classic The Gashlycrumb Tinies takes you on an A-Z journey through the perils of modern parenting as twenty-six moms succumb to hilarious and horrific child-care related fates. Hurts Like a Mother will make you laugh so you don’t cry (or die).

The perfect gift to make the mom in your life laugh!
