Description

 

See below for English description.

Plusieurs créatures mythiques flânent gaiement dans un royaume magique jusqu'à ce que... le Sasquatch coince son pied dans une souche, la licorne plante sa corne dans une table et qu'une averse fasse rouiller le bras-scie du robot. Mais n'ayez crainte! Papa est là pour tout arranger... même quand un alligator-pirate volant s'empare de la baguette magique de la fée-docteure-ballerine!

Une histoire hilarante sur le jeu et l'imagination, et un clin d'oeil à tous les papas.

 

A gang of mythical creatures is roaming around a magical land having a great time, until Bigfoot gets his foot stuck in a tree trunk and Unicorn gets her horn impaled on a table and Robot's saw-arm gets rusted into position. But have no fear! Dad is there to fix things—even when a Sneaky Flying Alligator Pirate steals the Fairy Queen Ballerina Doctor's wand.

A hilarious story about imagination, play and the best parts about being a dad.

Original title: It's Great Being a Dad

Dan Bar-el believes that the highest compliment a preschool child can pay is to call one silly. He carries the label with honor. "Preschool children have no patience for 'jokes,'" he says. "Ask one to tell you a knock-knock joke and, painfully, you'll see my point. But nothing gets a giggle like the absurd. Nothing is funnier than turning the rules on their heads." And that is exactly what Dan has done in his new book, in which each of twenty-six children is named for a child he has taught.

Editorial Reviews

 

«... [une] histoire construite habilement… Bar-el crée une harmonie de perspectives, de tempéraments, de dialectes, et de cadences qui font rire… Tout à fait charmant…» (Audrey(cow)) — Publishers Weekly
