Book review: Dear Mum

BOOK: Dear Mum
EDITED: Julia Morris
PUBLISHER: William Heinemann (Random House)
RRP: $29.95


THIS is the perfect gift for mums.

All royalties go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation and there is a specially provided space, at the end of the book, for you to write your letter to your mum.

There are 39 letters from well-known Australians each expressing unique and idiosyncratic sentiments.

Mike Munro's raw letter, Reg Mombassa's quirky poem and Kasey Edwards' direct dispatch are a few examples of the many letters that make it clear how important mothers can be.
