Mothers-In-Law Do Everything Wrong (MILDEW)

Front Cover
Andrews McMeel Publishing, Jan 1, 2009 - Humor - 208 pages

Does your mother-in-law still buy your husband underwear? Show up at your home unannounced? Do you keep hoping that aliens will kidnap her? If so, you must have MILDEW!

MILDEW, the playful acronym for Mothers-In-Law Do Everything Wrong, has allowed authors Liz Bluper and Renee Plastique to conduct covert conversations about their MILDEWs for the last decade--without drawing the ire of their husbands.

As humorous stories accumulated over the years, they began to broaden their MILDEW storytelling circle. Soon, that circle spanned the globe, resulting in the first-ever truly fun humor book on mothers-in-law. From the all-too-revealing quiz to the laugh-out-loud stories to the Hey, that really might work strategies, this book gives new meaning to the word MILDEW.

MILDEW gave me a Thigh Master for Christmas one year. --Margot, Connecticut

When I was pregnant with my first child, a son, MILDEW wanted us to name him after her husband, Ken. My husband and I, however, decided to name our son Jacob. MILDEW refused to accept this, and proceeded to call our son Ken. What's up with that? --Gretchen, Maine

Running the gamut from famous MILDEWs--such as the queen of England--to everyday MILDEWs just like yours, this witty insightful book transcends age, gender, culture, geography, and time. The hysterical tales of holiday chaos, helpful child-rearing advice, pre-wedding moments of horror, and MILDEW gift giving gone awry will keep you laughing and dying to share it with your friends.
