ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Sixteen different shapes and species of caring dads (and one who will probably never make it into a book on good parenting!) From the sandgrouse who soaks his feathers in water to take back to his nestlings, to the male chin-strap penguins who partner together to raise a chick; or the seahorse daddy who incubates the eggs in a special pouch, to the male wolves who care for and nurture their cubs - Dads come in all sorts, and set an example for their offspring to follow. Illustrated in Bunting's distinctive expressive style of graphic decoration, a lovely book for any human pup to give to their human daddy! Lindy Jones

Good dads come in many different shapes and species.

Get ready to learn a fatherly trick (or ten) from a whole lot of dads, great and small.

Philip Bunting is an author and illustrator, with a soft spot for creating picture books for sleep-deprived, time-poor, raisin-encrusted parents (and their children). Philip's work deliberately encourages playful interaction between the reader and child, allowing his books to create a platform for genuine intergenerational engagement and fun. He believes that the more fun the child has during their early reading experiences, the more likely they will be to return to books, improve their emergent literacy skills, and later find joy in reading and learning. Philip's books have been translated into multiple languages and published in over 25 countries around the world. Since his first book was published in 2017, Philip has received multiple accolades, including Honours from the Children's Book Council of Australia, and making the list for the Kate Greenaway Medal in 2018. Philip grew up in the England's Lake District and now lives with his young family in the hills behind Noosa.
