Description: Have you ever just popped into IKEA, only to spend the next hour wandering around the showroom like a lab-rat in a maze? In this collection of short stories, you’ll meet all sorts of characters straight out of daily life in Dubai. There’s: -Helicopter Mum: We all know her! -The Atlantis Tooth Fairy: She’s not your run-of-the-mill fairy -Shopaholic Katie: Admit it, you’ve also disappeared down the Karama rabbit hole -School teacher Hilary: Will she get to keep the Range Rover gifted to her by the royal family? -Overworked Marcie: Chaos ensues when her husband gets overexcited at the Expo 2020 and swaps their housemaid for a robot -Amir: A historical character who wants nothing more than to do his first, dangerous pearl dive The book also includes Cupcakes & Heels, the story of workaholic mum Julie Wainscote, who takes on the challenge of becoming a stay-at-home mum and discovers that the school run is a catwalk, coffee mornings involve competitive catering and the class bear has been to Lapland. Will she have to admit that the adjustment is a step too far for her?
