In their first children’s book, Logelin and Jensen reveal that while human dads can be “grouchy, bossy, or just totally gross,” it could be worse: an owl father “would keep you up aaaaaaaaaall night,” and a snake dad “would shed his skin in front of your friends.” In vivid digital cartoons, Chapman (Steve, Raised by Wolves) pictures two siblings suffering through each less-than-wonderful parent, from a monkey serving up a meal of bugs to a dino dad who’s “nothing but bones.” Irreverent closing notes offer extra details about the 16 animals. Light, jokey fun—dung beetles are always good for a laugh, right? Ages 4–8. Authors’ agent: Rachel Sussman, Chalberg & Sussman. Illustrator’s agent: Rebecca Sherman, Writers House. (May)
