Who wouldn't want to be just like daddy, when daddy is strong and silly, kind and practical? But he also knows how to have fun, and even if he messes up, it's never a big deal. Dad can deal with the scariest of monsters (well, spiders at least...), keeps his eyes open on the rollercoaster (most of the time), and puts on all the silly voices when he reads a bedtime story. The debut picture book from Lucy Freegard is funny, charming and heartwarming - a delightful read.

Such a sweet little book. 

It's a lovely story about how a raccoon wants to be like his daddy when he's older. 

The illustrations are beautifully done. My daughter really liked seeing the pictures and seemed to enjoy the story.

This is a lovely book which looks at the close bond between a child and their daddy. The page with pictures of 'best memories' is full of wonderful illustrations to talk about - the seaside, playing football, learning to ride a bike...I like the fact that the book acknowledges that Daddys love their children even when they are grumpy or naughty - the idea of unconditional love which is so important. It is a feel good book and will give children chance to read with their daddys and say ' remember when we did that'. Love it

A great read, liked by everyone, especially daddy! It got lots of laughs from my daughter as the daddy in the story gets up to all sorts of silly things. I liked that it's not just about how great daddy is, but also explains that no one is perfect, everyone makes mistakes and daddys love you no matter what. We really loved the pictures in this book the characters arereally sweet, and the daddy in the story is just as silly as ours so it fits us very well!

A story about a racoon who wanted to be just like his daddy. We enjoyed this story especially when the daddy was being silly and a big kid. We enjoyed the ending too.

This is a beautiful book celebrating a father and son bond. My daughter loved the front cover of this book and instantly wanted to know more. She enjoyed all the different activities the two main characters do and would often refer to what she would do with her dadda. The illustrations are adorable and the plain white background used on some pages allow you to appreciate the cuteness and makes the illustrations pop out more. The story not only shares the bond these two characters have but emphasises that everyone makes mistakes and no matter what unconditional love will always come first. A delightful read that I enjoyed my daughter read first with her dadda.

We loved reading this book together. My children really look up to their Daddy and my son is always saying how he wants to be like him (if not better) so when we read this together we talked about the similarities between the daddy in the book and their daddy. We loved the illustrations and the simplicity of the story. A great father's day present!!

This is a lovely heart-warming story about a little racoon that wants to grow up to be just like its daddy. We received this a few weeks ago but held it back for Father's Day as it was a perfect story for daddy and daughter to read together. It's a gentle book with sweet illustrations and the story shows that it's ok to be silly and have fun whatever age you are. We all love this book as a family.
