Most kids think their mom is beautiful.
That is so true!!
That may well be, but this book is addressing (whether well or not) a situation where a mother has decided to have major surgery, and is changing how she looks.
I am quandarising.....I'd be much happier with something like "Mummy is changing how she looks" or some damn thing, because I am uncomfortable with the pretty stuff too.
But.......as I said before, I suspect the way this book is framed, it is more congruent with what the kid is being told at home anyway.
I mean, I'd NEVER use it with a kid, it makes me wanna upchuck, but, as we all know, I'm a liberal elitist, so what would I know!!!
It also clearly doesn't cover non-cosmetic plastic surgery, but that's a different kettle of fish.
