Finally - a picture book for the Starbucks-armed, BlackBerry-checking, gym-going working mother. The high-octane duo of Rebecca Eckler and Erica Ehm have cooked up The Mischievous Mom at the Art Gallery, featuring a thoroughly modern mother who makes a point of including her two children in her always hectic life. At five o’clock, when Mom gets home, everything changes for Jessie and Josh. Their mother is mischievous, curious, adventurous, and free-spirited. In The Mischievous Mom at the Art Gallery, Mom takes her children to a swanky art gallery party. Although Jessie and Josh think standing around looking at art on a wall is B-O-R-I-N-G, they quickly learn otherwise. Nothing is ever really boring when Mom is around - especially when a “Do Not Enter - VIPs only!” sign beckons. Behind that door is a world of adventure just waiting to be discovered. Featuring the bright and energetic artwork of Carrie Hartman, The Mischievous Mom is for modern moms and their children - and for anyone who knows that not being afraid to think outside of the box can lead to the most memorable experiences of all.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Rebecca Eckler`s Knocked Up “Knocked Up is what would happen if Bridget Jones was finally impregnated by Mark Darcy.... At the end of nine months, Eckler has covered the basics of young motherhood in her own quirky and outlandish way.” - New York Daily News“Painfully funny.... Readers are treated to Eckler`s biting wit.... It`s fun to watch [Eckler] change from the woman who dreaded seeing mothers with being a mother herself.” - Los Angeles Times“[Eckler`s] frankness, quirky style and light touch are a winning combination.” - Kirkus Reviews“..this mommy memoir feels like a humorous crash course in maturity.” - Publishers Weekly“Hit[s] the mark among twenty- and thirtysomething mothers.” - Library Journal“A downtown girl attempts a stylish switch to yummy mommy. There appears to be no detail she`s reluctant to share. This isn`t supposed to be a parenting manual; it`s meant to be a funny, lighthearted take on a life in transition!” - The Toronto Star Praise for Carrie Hartman’s Child of Mind“In fifteen compelling full-page illustrations and with just 153 words, the author captures the three most likely areas of life pain for children with behavioral and emotional difficulties: being angry, being sad, and being “different.” Her book reassures both the child and the parent and reminds us that the child`s potentials can be realized and that life, though stressful for a special-needs child, can be beautiful.”- Review from John F. Taylor, Ph.D., author, The Survival Guide for Kids with ADD or ADHD
