This is a funny and honest look at a father and son relationship and all of the normal everyday things that are translated into robot language. Parents will relate to this, especially to the page where the Dad asks: What am I? An ATM? What am I? A Chauffeur? There are many other gems. There are some great illustrations in this colourful book.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a funny book about a Dad without dad jokes. There are some very typical ones in here.
If you loved this author's alpaca books, then you will love this.
One of my favourite children’s books of all time, made more memorable by the fact that I have met the author and I was able to discuss it with her. Quite often, the best children’s books start with the main character having a fear or loathing for something and then a twist of fate or situation helps them overcome that fear and hatred to the point where they love it.
The sea can be daunting, but it can also be beautiful. Shells can be beautiful, but also mysterious. With a little imagination, beauty and courage, David overcomes his fear.
A beautiful and imaginative book that still stands the test of time and tide, (excuse the pun). The book is beautifully illustrated. David’s smile is contagious.
