Us Minus Mum

Heather Butler

4 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction

Heart-warming as well as heart-breaking, Us Minus Mum is the story of two brothers and their lovable mongrel finding laughter in the face of loss.

George and Theo's mum is brilliant.

She tells great stories, can wave the fastest of anyone on the planet and, most importantly, she was the one who suggested they adopt a scruffy dog called Goffo.

The boys think she's invincible. But they're wrong.

Because Mum is ill.

Really ill.

It's up to George and Theo to keep Mum smiling. Which will almost probably definitely involve wellies, shepherd's pie and Goffo's victory at the pet talent show . . .

Praise for Us Minus Mum

  • Us Minus Mum is a perfectly-judged, wonderfully-observed story of coming to terms with the loss of a parent and coping with grief. It's also a funny and delightful portrait of a family that is probably different from your family, but just like it, too. I loved it and heartily recommend it to every single reader of 9 and up. - The Bookbag

  • . . . brilliant characters, plenty of action, snappy dialogue . . . It's heartbreaking, yes - but uplifting and enlightening, too. - Teach Primary
