Join Mummy as she embarks on a running adventure
Raych adores running and training for marathons, but with the arrival of her two twin boys – Ted and Bert – her fitness time suddenly becomes limited.
Initially struggling with separation anxiety when she leaves, Ted and Bert soon get used to the visual element of Mummy’s fluorescent running jacket. Yes, for now she will be going, but it won’t be long until she returns.
Now totally comfortable with Raych nipping out for a quick run, as Ted and Bert began to talk they would gleefully call out ‘A Mummy running!’ as she darted out the door.
But where does Mummy go? Who does she see? And will she get a cup of tea? Well, you’ll have to read on to find out…
Graeme Longstaff lives in Tamworth. A Mummy Running is inspired by his wife’s love of running and the arrival of their twin boys. He is the founder and creative director of Alive – a brand communications agency based in Birmingham. Out of work, he’s a compulsive tidier-upper, cartoon watcher, sillystorytellerr, cooker of nuggets (Ted & Bert are in ‘that’ phase), best footballer in the world (for now) and hot rod driver.
Helen Williams is the illustrator of A Mummy Running and by day, she also heads up design at Graeme’s agency – Alive. She says, “It’s been a joy to bring Graeme’s touching story to life, and I hope this is the first of many books that we can share with young families.”
