The Illustrated Mum


Marigold isn’t like other mums.

“She’s good at spending heaps of money that we haven’t got. She’s good at getting drunk. She’s good at getting completely nutty ideas into her head.”

Dolphin adores her mum – she’s beautiful and vibrant. She’s covered in colourful tattoos and with her bright hair and amazing clothes, Marigold stands out, wherever she goes.

But her sister, Star, feels differently.

Marigold may look great, but living with her unpredictable, fiery moods can be hard. After Marigold has a breakdown, Dolphin starts to wonder…is she the right person to be looking after her?
