Ever thought 'I wish there was an adult around', then realised you're the adult? Then Emily Writes' entertaining tales of growing up as your children grow up is for you.

In her new book, Needs Adult Supervision, Emily paints a vivid picture of all the feelings, fortunes and failures that come with trying to parent when you don’t always feel up to the task. Funny, sad, thoughtful, inspiring, and ultimately up-lifting for parents at all stages of life. Book a babysitter and enjoy a hilarious night out.
