Just Like Daddy

Who wouldn’t want to be just like daddy, when daddy is strong and silly, kind and practical? But he also knows how to have fun, and even if he messes up, it’s never a big deal. Dad can deal with the scariest of monsters (well, spiders at least…), keeps his eyes open on the rollercoaster (most of the time), and puts on all the silly voices when he reads a bedtime story. The debut picture book from Lucy Freegard is funny, charming and heartwarming – a delightful read.

Our Review Panel says...

Lucy Freegard captures the father-child relationship through the eyes of a child. The story beautifully draws out Dad’s admirable qualities that the child wishes to emulate – his strength, silliness, courage and ability to deal with mistakes – not to mention the silly voices he does when he reads a bedtime story! A lovely book for Father’s day.
