By Roy Apps
Illustrated by Nick Sharratt
All the answers to your troublesome family and adult-handling questions!
This super silly book is here to 'help' children with all dad-related breakdowns (so add it to the basket quick, before your dad spots it in his order, erhem!)
Inside you'll find highly expert* advice, from identifying dad 'types' to solving dad problems, getting your dad going and how to deal with embarrassing situations.
This hilarious handbook also sheds light on those tough to answer questions, such as "Are Dads Human?", and has some really quite funny quizzes, too.
WARNING: contains daft material that kids might actually enjoy reading. Perfect for readers aged 7+.
