Mummy dreams of a quirky rural cottage with roses around the door and chatty chickens in the garden. Life, as ever, is not going quite as she planned. Paxo, Oxo and Bisto turn out to be highly rambunctious, rather than merely chatty, and the roses have jaggy thorns.
Her precious moppets are now giant teenagers, and instead of wittering at her about who would win in a fight – a dragon badger or a ninja horse – they are Snapchatting the night away, stropping around the tiny cottage and communicating mainly in grunts – except when they are demanding Ellen provides taxi services in the small hours.
And there is never, but never, any milk in the house. At least the one thing they can all agree on is that rescued Barry the Wolfdog may indeed be The Ugliest Dog in the World, but he is also the loveliest.
After having read the other two books before this, I couldn’t wait to dive straight back in and see how Ellen was getting on. These books are not just for mums to read, and they really are laugh out loud stories. You couldn’t make them up if you tried. These books are highly addictive and I am already looking forward to the next instalment.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
