How to Talk to Moms

About the Book

Mess with them if you dare! Nine-year-old author of HOW TO TALK TO GIRLS Alec Greven reminds the world that moms are smart cookies! Want to know how to stay on mom's good side? Nine-year-old Alec Greven has some advice for you:
  • Take bribes.
  • Clean up by yourself without being asked. You will probably get some big rewards.
  • Leave nice notes and give hugs.
  • Don't use your shirt as a napkin or a Kleenex. Readers of all ages will go back again and again to this guidebook on mother-child relationships from this 9 year old guru. Alec's hilarious insights into Mom, as well as his advice for what to do (and not do) to make her happy ("You need to use caution when your mom asks you to clean") are right on target. And of course, everyone will want to give this to the mom in their family! HOW TO TALK TO MOMS features more than 20 black-and-white pieces of art by Kei Acedera. Kei is also the illustrator of Alec's first book, HOW TO TALK TO GIRLS, and his third, about how to deal with your dad. For all ages!
