Sarah Garland creates books for children whose families are busy and noisy. Is there any other kind? In Coming to Tea, a plant pot is knocked over, hair is tangly, grass overgrown, a baby fills a nappy. Who cares? Two mums turn tea-time into a party. Garland's drawings are anarchic and jolly, and capture the reality of domestic bliss. ( Independent)About the Author:
