    The new Australian go-to book for parents wanting help with THAT talk ...

    For the last forty years, Peter Mayle's WHERE DID I COME FROM? has been the go-to book for parents seeking help with the birds and the bees talk.

    In 2015, Australian cartoonist Fiona Katauskas will publish a thoroughly modern book on this timeless subject.

    THE AMAZING TRUE STORY OF HOW BABIES ARE MADE is Fiona's brilliant response to finding herself reading the same sex-ed book to her son as her mother had read to her. That book is, of course, Peter Mayle's 1973 bestseller, a classic picture book that has helped millions of parents and teachers around the world navigate those tricky questions about how babies are made.

    Fiona's book captures all the elements that made WHERE DID I COME FROM? such a success: it's funny, it's warm, it's straightforward and it's the perfect helping hand for carers. But things have changed since the seventies, and Fiona's book is exactly what modern parents have been waiting for!
