Product Details


★ “Recommend to fans of the TV show Bluey, who are familiar with fathers losing themselves in their children’s playscapes. A silly celebration of play, imagination, and devoted fathers.”  —School LIbrary Journal, starred review

“Dad’s the straight man here, and Agee is unafraid to have him deadpan a look right at viewers when situations become particularly wacky. Accompanied by textured, collagelike visuals, this is an amusing little ode to the extent to which dads sometimes go above and beyond . . . A fun paean to fathers willing to go the extra mile for their nature-loving kids.” —Kirkus

“Both a satisfying role-reversal comedy, as Madeleine cheerfully bulldozes hapless Dad, and a quirky meditation on the human capacity for transformation.” —Publishers Weekly

“Agee illustrates the story in beautifully simple strokes, employing his trademark style through a softly bright color palette . . . Kids will be tickled by the playful premise and the control exerted by the child over the parent. A fun, funny lap read—but dads beware.” —Booklist

“Agee keeps the compositions and dialogue uncluttered and unfussy, and children will delight in the visual hyperbole—the growing number of creatures who pile on Dad. This entertaining story expresses what children know so well: playing outside can be filled with surprises.” —Horn Book
