A funny and heart-warming story exploring disability and environmental awareness, couched in unconditional love. 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. So when Jake’s mum upcycles every last thing in the apartment, Jake begins to worry that the only thing left to change is…him! Will Jake’s mum try to change him too?
"From a wheelchair-using mum who is always picking up treasure and making things, thank you so much. It is so rare to find books that show pictures that look like our family!"
