Like many little kids, Stinky Face worries when his Mama is away. But Mama tells her son that nothing can keep them apart and that she’ll be flying home to see him tomorrow. When Stinky Face asks what will happen if the plane forgets how to fly, she tells him she’ll hop in a hot-air balloon. And if that hot-air balloon runs out of air and has to land in the desert, she’ll ride a camel home to see him.
And on and on it goes, as the boy imagines Mama braving hungry sharks, terrible pirates, spaceships lost in time, and much more to get home to her son. In the end, mother and son reveal how much they miss each other and how they can’t wait to be together again! Kids will laugh at all the fun situations and wild exaggerations and will be reassured by the endearing message about the undying love of a mother.

As a traveling Mom, the perfect book to show my four year old that I will let nothing stop me from getting home to see her.
I love this book. I work at a bookstore and I read it over and over - and I don't even have children of my own. It's perfectly sweet and fun, but it doesn't ignore the gravity of the situation: parent and child are separated. All of the Stinky Face books are wonderful, but this one is my favorite. Check it out and find out what one determined mom will whisper into the ear of a magic dragon or racing cheetah or a crew of unhappy pirates...just to get back to her boy.
