The Playground Mafia Book Review

The Playground Mafia is an interesting read. It’s essentially a series of profiles of different parents. Although both authors stress the characters are tongue in cheek i.e. not based on anyone they’ve met through their own playground experience I find it difficult to believe.

The book features 30 plus different ¬†characters and I recognised them all. This is a book to read in small chunks. It might seem a bit far-fetched but if you have children you know it’s all true.

The Playground Mafia by Clare Christian and Elisabeth Kent published by John Blake Publishing. RRP £7.99

I was sent this book to review as part of the BritMums Book Club. All views are my own.

    yes it was easy to see lots of familiar characters in the book! Although there were lots of stereotypes, there were lots of recognisable traits that are spotted at the school gates. x

    It was not really my cup of tea but I did like how you could read it quickly and dip in and out
