Hurrah for Gin: A book for perfectly imperfect parents

Katie Kirby

5 Reviews

Rated 0

Hurrah for Gin, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Prose: non-fiction, Family & health, Humour

Illustrated by hilarious stick men cartoons, HURRAH FOR GIN, based on the popular blog and Facebook account, is a book for imperfectly perfect parents about the funny stuff they don't tell you in parenting guides.

This book is not a how-to-guide. It won't tell you how to get your baby to sleep, how to deal with toddler tantrums, how to be a good parent, a cool parent or even a renegade parent. It is a book about parenting that contains absolutely no useful advice whatsoever.

Instead it shares beautifully honest anecdotes and illustrations from the parenting frontline that demonstrate it is perfectly possible to love your children with the whole of your heart whilst finding them incredibly irritating at the same time.

From pregnancy to starting school, HURRAH FOR GIN takes you through the exciting, frustrating, infuriating and wonderful whirlwind of parenthood, offering solidarity and a friendly hug after a tough day.

Best served with gin.

My name is Katie and I live with my husband and two young sons by the sea In Brighton. I started blogging on a whim one night, probably under the influence of gin after a bad day. Through 'Hurrah For Gin' I try to give a real and humorous account of parenting young children - the happy, the sad, the good and the bad.
