Mum and Dad Glue Summary

Mum and Dad Glue by Kes Gray

This comforting, reassuring picture book will help young children come to terms with divorce and separation.

A little boy tries to find a pot of parent glue to stick his mum and dad back together. His parents have come undone and he wants to mend their marriage, stick their smiles back on and make them better.

But, as he learns, even though his parents' relationship may be broken, their love for him is not.

"An excellent book aimed squarely at young children." Nursery World
"Resonates with empathy and poignancy." Junior

Mum and Dad Glue Reviews

While the text carries the message, the pictures contribute significantly to this excellent story ... for the child facing parental breakdown, it could be a lifesaver * Carousel *
Incredibly powerful * The Bookseller *
Understanding and honest * The Bookseller *
It has the usual message that Mum and Dad still love the little boy ... but its key meaning is something more than that. This book shows how the strength to come to terms with a divorce is within the child and not dependent on the love of the parents. This is an important message for a child to learn at any age and in any circumstance * INIS *
An excellent book aimed squarely at young children * Nursery World *
Stunning ... resonates with empathy and poignancy * Junior *
Insightful and at times heartbreaking view of separation from a child's perspective that will offer reassurance to anyone going through this process * Evening Echo *
The integrated text and child-centred artwork make this a special production * Books For Keeps *
The artwork is engaging, the text has subtle rhythms and rhymes * School Librarian *
Essential reading for any family going through a separation * Angels & Urchins *
"An incredibly powerful book about a boy coming to terms with his parents' divorce: a difficult subject treated with a wonderfully light touch. I'm a huge Lee Wildish fan and think he's definitely a name to watch for the future. I defy you to read this without a lump in your throat." * Kate Skipper, Waterstones Buyer *
Lee Wildish's illustrations are lovely. The characters have a rough charm that really draws you in - there are hints of Quentin Blake's ink drawings, but Wildish's style is very much of its own. * Bookbag *
