Artist Jonty Lees brings his peculiar humour and style to this original new children’s book. Downtrodden and hen-pecked by his partner and two daughters, the “Daddy” of the story decides to take things into his own hands.

 

Tired of not being able to eat his favourite pies, listen to Neil Diamond and do the things he likes to do he starts to make changes around the house...

 

The inevitable fight that results between the family is funny, unusual and, at times, bizarre. And only after they have battled over food, fashion, interior decorating, personal hygiene and music do they all unite again as one big happy family.

 

> Perfect gift book for all frustrated Dads

> Second in a series of illustrated children’s books from great new talent

> Beautiful drawings and wonderful humour

>  Aimed at Key Stage 1, children aged 3 +
