My amazing Dad

Ezekiel Kwaymullina, illustrated by Tom Jellett
Little Hare Books [Hardie Grant Egmont]
ISBN: 9781921894862
RRP: $24.95

This Dad doesn’t quite have the finesse to make a perfect job of everything. When he mows the lawn, it looks more like a wobbly maze; he can’t fix a leaky tap, but he sure knows how to make a bubble bath; and he’s always running late – which can be handy on schooldays. But he loves to play games and tell stories at bedtime. He makes the days happy, shown in the bright, expressive illustrations in flat poster colours. Not all dads need to fit the superdad stereotype.
