My Mum Is A Lioness
Haddow’s picturebook explores a young boy’s relationship with his lioness-like mother. The story takes us on a journey of his day-to-day life in the world of this loud and proud woman and her interactions with her son, their family and community. At first it would appear that the boy is a little bit afraid of his mum, but this turns out to be very far from the case. As things unfold it becomes clear why she takes on the form of a lioness in this young boy’s mind: she is fierce and brave and, most importantly, incredibly loving.
