ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ---- The moment I laid eyes on this, I knew it was something special. The illustrations by Jonathan Bentley tumble across the cover and into the book (truly beautiful in rustic line and earthy colour) and Anthony Bertini has captured those special years, that short window of time, when a child looks and listens to their parents, eager to soak up knowledge about the world. Here it is Dad's turn to shine. Craig Kirchner


A meditation on fatherhood, and a timeless story that will resonate with fathers across the generations.

As a day unfolds in a quiet Italian village, a father encapsulates his hopes and dreams for his young child. Wise, moving and inspirational, What My Pa Told Me is the perfect story for fathers to share with their children.
