You can now buy a copy of my children's book here. The book is a celebration of the flawed art of multitasking with children around. The inspiration struck me when I was at the Ceres market and I overheard a parent who was reaching up to get something high off a shelf call out "get your hands out of the lentils, Serenity".
The line survives in the book, which captures the many different kinds of adventure that can happen when you think you're just going shopping.
