Say It Again in a Nice Voice

"Meg Mason’s approach to parenting is refreshing and hilarious. Thanks to a kindly neighbour, Meg discovered that convincing her newborn to take a bottle by letting it lick a Dorito first to ‘get more thirsty’ wasn’t quite orthodox. I like her already. If you’ve ever questioned your own skills as a mother, Say It Again in a Nice Voice will put everything nicely into perspective."
– Vogue Australia

"... hilarious and beautifully honest. If you don’t break into audible giggles at least once while you’re reading it, better check your pulse."
– SHOP Til You Drop
