What could it mean that your mum is paid to die? It could mean she’s an opera singer!
How does it feel to grow up as the child of a glamorous opera singer? It’s anything but boring! In a single day, Mum’s mood can change—from very quiet to loud to quick-tempered. By day she plays with the children, but at night a transformation occurs! Who will Mother be today? When Mum is on stage, she delights her audience and her countless tragic, but also funny, death scenes leave a special impression. But to her family, she is always Mum.
Carla Haslbauer’s hilarious debut picture book, inspired by the world of opera, reminds us that we all slip into many different roles.
