I wish you could change dads, the way you can change library books. I wish there was a Dad Library.
Joseph is fed up with his dad. He forgets to go shopping, he cooks terrible meals, he doesn't help Joseph with his homework and he makes him eat school dinners.
Then Joseph discovers the Dad Library, crammed full with all sorts of wonderful dads. Should he borrow an Organizer Dad, or a Sporting Dad, or a Clever Dad, or an Indulgent Dad? Joseph wants to try them all. But which one will he want to keep?
Its humour and sheer dottiness should keep those confident enough to go solo turning its 96 pages and smiling along the way at Tim Archbold's line drawings which have more than a hint of Quentin Blake about them
Has child appeal, and would make a suitable serial for younger primary age children, as well as an individual read
