When Jake's mum upcycles every last thing in the flat, Jake begins to worry that the only thing left to change is . . . him!


Jake's mum is not like most mums. Say there's a skip in the street, most mums will pass right by without a second glance. Not Jake's mum. "Look at this, Jake!" she'll shout. "We must have this! We must have this, too! And we simply must have this!" That's Jake's mum for you. She's a must-have mum. Soon Jake begins to worry that his mum will want to change him too. Should he be this way? Or that way? Or another way altogether?


A heart-warming story about the unbreakable bond between a mother and her son, and a little boy who learns that he is perfect just the way he is.
