Book Club: The Playground Mafia reviews

playground mafia 610


Our latest book is “The Playground Mafia”. Book Club hostess Jacqueline Steward, who blogs at Best and Beyond, starts us off on the discussion below. Read what she thought about the book and join in.

I confess I moved my children from one school as I found the playground mafia at their SW London school too much.

So, I read The Playground Mafia with great interest. The book is supposedly tongue in cheek. However, for me it was an uncanny reflection of some of the challenging attitudes and behaviour we experienced. Corporate Mum and Stay At Home Dad amongst the many profiles I recognised.

This is a book choc-full of astute profiles. It’s a book to read in small bursts. Although the authors stress it’s for humour it resonated with me. Let me know what you think and which profile suits you best. In the meantime, I’m assuming we are all balanced, normal mums.

The Playground Mafia by Clare Christian and Elisabeth Kent is published by John Blake Publishing. RRP £5.99

    Have linked up. Probably my least favourite book so far from Britmums bookclub but I know that others really liked it so I think it just wasn’t my cup of tea. I’m enjoying reading the variety of books though as it is helping me differentiate between styles of book I enjoy and those I don’t enjoy so much.
