Gullane Children's Books, 2011. ISBN: 978-1862338371.
(Suitable for ages 6+) A board book about a young girl who contemplates her life if her mum were abducted by aliens. She lists all things her mum does for her that she would miss.  She realises that life wouldn't be the same without her, that she would miss her mother's little quirky sayings and actions. The little girl would miss the little things her mother does for her and couldn't bear not to be close to her mum. She realises that her mum really is marvelous.
A nice little story written for young readers to understand and appreciate their mums!
