The illustrations in this book were absolutely stunning. But should we expect anything less from Berkeley Breathed, the Pulitzer Prize winning author and creator of Bloom County and Opus? Milo wonders what is so special about mothers; they make you do want you do not want to do, don't let you do want you do want to do; make you eat what you do not want and so on. Then when Aliens invade and start kidnapping moms, he stows away to rescue his. It is a wonderful story sure to be enjoyed by the young and those who read to them.
