Overview
The ideal gift book for anyone whose dad makes them laugh -- or roll their eyes.

When his son says "I'm hungry," Dad says, "Hello, Hungry. Pleased to meet you." Before slicing a cake for dessert, Dad announces, "There's my piece. What's everybody else having?" Tell Dad your foot hurts? "No problem. You've got another." How is he feeling? "With my hands." So when nothing's up but the sky, or when jumping in the shower sounds dangerous, it may be a good time to share this book with someone who doesn't need sugar because, well, they're sweet enough already.

Australian author Germein pokes good-natured fun at the kind of father who always has a corny quip or pun at the ready—much to the chagrin of his son (Jellett provides a four-step diagram of how to perform “the eye roll”). “My dad thinks he’s funny,” says the boy, who shares his spiky ginger hair with his progenitor. “When I tell Dad my foot hurts, he says, ‘No problem. You’ve got another.’ ” And it’s not just on the home front: “When people say, ‘How are you feeling?’ Dad says, ‘With my hands.’ When people say, ‘Would you like sugar?’ Dad says, ‘I’m sweet enough.’ ” Jellett’s mixed-media art includes cut-paper shapes and rough outlines, creating a fresh, extemporaneous style. Readers whose fathers are founts of one-liners will groan with recognition—and dads who don’t have a joke for every occasion will find plenty of ammunition. Ages 5–8. (Apr.)
