A mummy kid suffering from a too tightly wrapped relationship with his mother asserts his independence, in hilarious puns and cute pictures! A must read for all Mummy lovers!

Not bad, but Goodnight Goon was better.

Even mother mummies love their rotten little mummies. This parody pairs nicely with Lisa McCourt's book, "I Love You, Stinky Face."
