A funny and very different take on parenthood, for all who loved Slummy Mummy and I Don't Know How She Does It.

In theory, life for Sam as a stay-at-home dad is idyllic and stress-free. Months of honing his childcare programme have enabled him to run a ship-shape home with productive days spent creating finger-print masterpieces, cooking up organic cuisine and polishing the family silver.

In practice, the Holden Childcare Programme has fallen out of favour. Sam's days are filled with tantrums, food fights and undisclosed amounts of telly watching, and he can't help but feel the aching tedium and financial pinch. Even the flattering advances of Jodhpur Mum aren't enough to lift his spirits. But things are about to change dramatically.

While Sam's status as a stay-at-home dad goes national via his own hit TV show, WonderHubby, life on the home front quickly spirals out of control ...
