A boy is certain that his father used to be a real rocker. Evidence is everywhere, from the drum kit in the closet to his dad’s heavily tattooed arms. So how did he turn into someone who vacuums, folds laundry, and drives an SUV? “My dad having fun? I wish I could have seen it,” thinks the boy as Nagley (Tough Guys Have Feelings Too) pictures the man crouching in back-to-back spreads. In the first, he’s roaring into a mike on stage, red Mohawk ablaze; in the second, he’s tying his son’s shoes. Nagley’s punchy graphics bring real emotion to a story that’s sensitive with just a bit of an edge—not unlike the boy’s father. Ages 3–5. (July)
