Insightful, tender and very, very funny, the images from the author's blog, The Daily Think, have become hugely popular, and the very best of them are collected together in this exquisite and hilarious gift book. The illustrations chronicle all manner of parenting fails and mishaps, plus a fair few sweet and poignant moments, and it will raise a giggle of recognition from beleaguered mums and dads everywhere. It's the perfect gift for a world-weary parent who's seen it all before, or a new one to let them know what they're in for!

Synopsis

The Quick Guide to Parenting by Laura Quick

Since 2012, fashion illustrator Laura Quick has been sketching scenes from daily domestic life on her blog, The Daily Think. All the bizarre moments and ridiculous conversations that are part of being a parent are here, from the day Laura's daughter tried to poke her finger into a dog's rear end to the enormous sense of relief when the school holidays are over.
